Overview

For now, in an act of homage and celebration, William Horwood has brought to life once more the four most-loved characters in English literature: the loyal Mole, the resourceful Water Rat, the stern but wise Badger, and, of course, the exasperating, irresistible Toad. The result is an enchanting, unforgettable new novel, enlivened by delightful illustrations, in which William Horwood has recaptured all the joy, magic, and good humor of Grahame's great work - and Toad is still as exasperatingly lovable as he ever was.

Editorial Reviews

The New York Times
The old characters pop back to life as you begin reading.
The Chicago Tribune
Faithful to the original...Festive...A winsome winner.
Atlanta Journal Constitution
The Willows in Winter transports us back to that familiar rivery world almost as authoritatively— and entertainingly— as a sequel by Grahame himself.
Cleveland Plain Dealer
Patrick Benson's cross-hatched illustrations seem to have been lovingly guided by the hand of Ernest Shepard, whose 1931 drawings of The Wind in the Willows continue to transport young readers to meadow, riverbank, and wildwood.
