I had a great time reading this lighthearted book. I enjoyed the adventures that the animals found themselves in. I decided that I would like to be friends with rat. This was a fun read.

f you ever feel like falling into a beautiful comic-book story--in the same way one falls back into a warm field of grass--reach for Michel Plessix's lush adaptation of Kenneth Grahame's Wind in the Willows. The artwork is an aquarelle, with thin, precise, detailed lines. It's no wonder he received numerous awards for his previous effort, Julien Boisvert, a contemporary take on the Tintin character type. In Wind in the Willows, Plessix breathes life into Mole, Rat, and Toad (of Toad Hall) as they picnic on the riverbank, indulge in Toad's latest fad, and get lost in Wild Wood. The pacing is masterful: each panel lingers just long enough to make you appreciate the simple pleasures of life.

a great children's classic

Finding the secret of the wind is hard enough without Mole wandering off into the Wild Wood and getting caught in a snowstorm or Toad stealing motorcars and landing in jail. Between practical Water Rat and wise old Badger, the four of them manage, after many great adventures and much laughter, to settle down to a quiet roar with an understanding of the wind's song and the Wild wood.

I had not read this classic as a child, so now I am trying to catch up. I really enjoyed reading about the relationships and adventures of Mole, Ratty, Badger, and Mr. Toad. Some of the stories reminded me of the Redwall series, although not quite as adventurous. There were a few altercations between "good" animals and "bad"; and, as in Redwall, the weasels are on the side of the "bad"; but, like the Winnie-the-Pooh stories, there were also humorous and homely situations, as well as stories of lasting friendships. I especially liked reading the descriptions of each animal's home and the trips along the river. Mr. Toad is not to be believed, with his shananigans and wild ideas! I truly recommend this book to adults and children, alike.

found it to be too immature for my grand daughters 6 and 10. They weren't interested

A Wonderful children's classic. Beautiful illustrations throughout.
reviewed The Wind in the Willows on
This book is about 6 pages long. It is a pop up book with no plot. I was very dissatisfied, as I wanted the actual characters in a story. Too short to even keep my child's attention.

This is "The Wild Wood" pop-up book. Cute for very young children

Follow the delightful tales of Badger, Rat, Toad, Mole, and their charming riverbank neighbors in this classic story of friendship and loyalty by Kenneth Grahame. Originally told as bedtime stories to his young son, Grahame composed a gorgeous world of willows, reeds, and bubbling brooks inhabited by charming characters in an English countryside. Today, it's easy to share these stories with your children, while enjoying the adventures of their favorite animal friends. Listen as four heroes find friendship and honor in The Wind in the Willows (inside cover)

This paperback is complete and unabridged. It also claims to be "Larger Type" for easier reading, but the type seems standard to me.

A really nice edition. I liked the fact that it is unabridged. I like to read stories as the author intended tham to be read. Very nice illustrations too.

This is a literary edition for a scholar or student, containing an author biography and scholarly introduction. Does not have the original illustrations.

The delightful escapades of the four famous friends -- Mole, Rat, Badger, and Toad -- have enchanted children, and grownups too, for more than 50 years. Illustrated with color plates by Tasha Tudor.

Kenneth Grahame said he wrote not only for children but for adults ho remember what it is like to be chlidren.

As a child, I loved the stories about Mole, Ratty, Badger and Toad. There weren't many adventure/fantasy books then (am I giving away my age?) and these books are so well written, you begin to believe the characters are 'people' you know. Highly recommend!!
