The River is a captivating place--it has fish, and boats, and trees along its banks. But something about this River sets it apart, and has made The Wind in the Willows a story to return to again and again.
In this young reader's edition of The Wind in the Willows, original illustrations capture the magic of the River and its memorable inhabitants.
The River is the home of four close friends, who may remind you of people you know. Join the boastful but generous Toad in his reckless escapades, and explore new worlds with the curious Mole and the imaginative Water Rat, all the while under the watchful, wise eyes of the Badger. These four are very different from one another, but Toad, Mole, Rat, and Badger are the best of friends, and will do anything to help each other.
Just as the River casts an enchanting spell, The Wind in the Willows beckons readers to return to its tales of mystery and friendship, to the excitement of exploration and the comforts of home.
