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.
Kenneth Grahame began writing as a hobby and wrote parts of "The Wind in the Willows" originally in letter form to his young son Alistair whose excesses of behavior had similarities with Toad.
Robert Ingpen studied illustration in Melbourne and has designed, illustrated and written more than one hundred published works of fiction and non-fiction. In 1986 he was awarded the coveted Hans Christian Andersen Medal for his contribution to children s literature.
