    Willows Magic

    The Wind in the Willows is a classic story of animals and their world. It is a bit confusing on how they relate to humans in the story but it is also very enjoyable. I have this book and find it very interesting. It talks of the liberty of life and of the wild. Imagine being in this book and you would feel total peace with the world. Toad is the livliest of the characters with a passion for everything new and exciting. Mole and Rat are both mostly practical in thier ways but still have their own personalities. Badger is the wise old one of them all and seems to rule them. They are all sweet and magnificent characters, although I find the sequal, the Willows in Winter, somewhat different than the first book, I still enjoyed it too. It is strange but it makes everything seem enchanted with the pull of nature.

    Willows Begining

    Finally, people who have read the book. My grevious apologies, but I did not find this book to be of the same standards of the works of William Horwood, the writer that continued the series. People may argue that it is plagerism, but he did do a very fine job. This is the begining of a series, a classic. It is the story of animals that go off and ammuse themselves by having adventures. It was a good book, but a bit odd in parts. I cannot complain because I grew up enjoying the story. Over all, it is a pleasing story.

    A great book.

    I love The Wind in the Willows. It is such a fun book. It is about the adventures of the comical Mr. Toad and his three friends who try to help him: A. MacBadger, Mr. Moley, and Mr.Ratty. They are very funny characters and it is a delightful book.
