"There's nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as messing about in boats....

One of the all-time great animal stories. Kenneth Grahame's classic children's book, with exclusive illustrations from EH Shepard has delighted generations. The perfect gift for any child.

The Wild Wood seems a terrifying place to Mole, until he finds it's full of friends - Kind, sleepy Badger; brave and lively Ratty; and the irresponsible Mr Toad, famous for his wealth and his car smashes. But there are also the sinister weasels and stoats, and they capture Toad Hall when Mr Toad is in jail. How will he escape? And can the friends fight together to save Toad Hall?

Kenneth Grahame's The Wind in the Willows needs no introduction. Entertaining adults and children alike for over a hundred years, characters such as Ratty, Mole, Badger and, of course, the irrepressible Mr Toad have influenced children's animal stories ever since. Fun, exciting, whimsical and dangerous at times, The Wind in the Willows can't help but spark a child's imagination.

In this Egmont edition, Kenneth Grahame's classic animal book, is made all the more beautiful and enthralling thanks to the exclusive and original artwork by E. H. Shepard, the man who also illustrated Winnie-the-Pooh.

Kenneth Grahame was born in 1859. He told his son stories about water rats and moles which became The Wind in the Willows, the book for which he is best known. He died in 1932.
