The Wind in the Willows

By Kenneth Grahame
Illustrated by Robert Ingpen

Celebrate 100 years of "The Wind in the Willlows" with this glorious illustrated edition.

This tale was first published in 1908, and met with instant popularity. Its greatest strength lay in its animal characters, and children and adults alike fell in love the timid Mole, the friendly Water Rat, the imperious Badger and the mischievous Toad.

  • A classic and well loved tale beautifully illustrated by a modern master.
  • A companion to Ingpen’s illustrated editions of "The Jungle Book" and "Peter Pan and Wendy".
