Product Description

The Wind in the Willows, by Kenneth Grahame, is part of the Literary Classics Collection, which offers quality editions at affordable prices to the student and the general reader, including new scholarship, thoughtful design, and pages of carefully crafted extras. Here are some of the remarkable features of the Literary Classics Collection:

- New introductions commissioned from today's top writers and scholars
- Biographies of the authors
- Chronologies of contemporary historical, biographical, and cultural events
- Footnotes and endnotes
- Selective discussions of imitations, parodies, poems, books, plays, paintings, operas, statuary, and films inspired by the work
- Comments by other famous authors
- Study questions to challenge the reader's viewpoints and expectations
- Bibliographies for further reading

All editions are beautifully designed and are printed to superior specifications; some include illustrations of historical interest. The Literary Classics Collection pulls together a constellation of influences—biographical, historical, and literary—to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works.

Since its first publication in 1908, generations of adults and children have cherished Kenneth Grahame’s classic, The Wind in the Willows. For in this entrancing, lyrical world of gurgling rivers and whispering reeds live four of the wisest, wittiest, noblest, and most lovable creatures in all literature—Rat, Mole, Badger, and Toad of Toad Hall. Like true adventurers, they glory in life’s simplest pleasures and natural wonders. But it is Toad, cocky and irrepressible in his goggles and overcoat, whose passion for motorcars represents the free and fearless spirit in all of us; just as it’s Toad’s downfall that inspires the others to test Grahame’s most precious theme—the miracle of loyalty and friendship.

3.0 out of 5 stars Unremarkable picture book. 13 Aug 2012
This book is a picture book aimed at pre-school & Foundation age children. It simplifies the story hugely - the first chapter, 'The River Bank', for example, is reduced to 34 words and one double-page picture. Consequently, the characters are slightly caricatured - Toad the buffoon, weasels the out-and-out baddies and Badger, Ratty & Mole all terribly sensible.

The illustrations are pretty enough, without being particularly captivating and the story is exciting enough for the book to appeal to most 3-6 year olds. However, if you're looking to this book to inspire a love of Kenneth Grahame's classic in a child, this edition doesn't really cut it; indeed, it is just as likely to put off a child from reading the original when they are older by giving away the plot, while failing to give away the magic, of the original.
