Product Description

Product Description

* Illustrated
* Annotated

The song of a childhood never lost, the celebration of innocence and mischief, the immortality of friendship, the unity of wonder and fear in that long-ago world where the “tall ones” seem to belong to another race entirely … these and more are the treasures to be found and regained in THE GOLDEN AGE.

Kenneth Grahame is best known today for the masterpiece he wrote for his son, THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS; but it is this book that he loved best, and that sealed his reputation as one of England’s best beloved authors. Few books are as painfully and hilariously insightful toward the meaning of childhood, and the sacredness of nostalgia. THE GOLDEN AGE stands with Tom Sawyer, A Garden of Verses and The Jungle Book as one of the finest “children’s adventures for grownups” of all time.

This illustrated edition included 51 beautiful period drawings and paintings, as well as complete annotations and translations by Kent David Kelly, editor of THE COMPLETE ALICE IN WONDERLAND and THE ILLUSTRATED WIND IN THE WILLOWS.

(Includes the classic novel in full, with 51 illustrations. 17 chapters, 39,000 words, 160 pages.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply enchanting 27 Feb 2010
Format:Paperback
Quite easily amongst the most romantic reflections on those immortal days of childhood. All the familiar sights, smells and imaginings of your earliest rememberances come flooding back as you turn through these delicious pages. Those utter convictions that you once possessed that you were really a ferocious lion, a battling knight of the round table, that toys possessed their own thoughts. That undefinable excitement our young hearts felt when on the scent of an epic discovery. And the joy of finding those few Olympians (the word the children use for Adults) who had the sense to see things as children know they truly are. This book can happily be consumed in a day or two which will feel like a long languid summer of those bygone days. Kenneth Grahame not only evokes all these joyful memories but captures them in some of the most graceful and colourful prose used by any British author. He is a literary alchemist, coining sentences and phrases of golden splendour that leave you yearning to live inside the pages he writes. Anybody who loves well crafted words should read this book. In writing Wind in the Willows Kenneth Grahame gave the world a beautiful gift but possibly robbed himself of the greater recognition owed to his name since most of his other books are obscured in the shadow of that famous work. The Golden Age is a book that all Grown-ups should read afore they forget those happy memories when our hearts were full and days were happy. Please buy this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love these stories 12 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Victorian childhood in all its glory and grimness. Rather comparable to some of Rudyard Kipling's stories like Riki Tiki Tavi in atmosphere. Not quite the magic of Dream Days but pretty good.
