Kenneth Grahame was born in Scotland in 1859. After the death of his mother he was sent to live with his grandparents in Berkshire and attended school in Oxford. On leaving school he worked at the Bank of England and also wrote articles and stories which he submitted to many publications.

He married in 1899 and had a son, Alastair. His best-known story, The Wind in the Willows, was published in 1908. After the sudden death of his son, Grahame was grief-stricken and became reclusive. He died in 1932 and is buried in Oxford.

My only real memory of this classic book was a stop-motion TV movie I saw as a child. I remember parts of it vividly and that I liked it but that's about it. I didn't venture on to read the book because, like most children, I assumed I'd basically done that by watching the programme instead. WRONG.

I borrowed a copy of this from my local library because I was feeling the urge for some middle-grade reading and this fit the bill perfectly. It was fun, funny, charming and had wonderful written characters, so it's no surprise that I really loved it.

The wonderful story of a group of creatures that live by the river and how their lives change through the seasons. We follow the misadventures of Rat, Mole, Badger and the ever mischief-making Toad as they live, play and change together. It has it's funny moments and rather sweet and heartfelt times too as we see the care between them all and despair at on-and-other as they make mistakes. My favourite character was Toad because he was a real English eccentric and a bit mad. He had a good heart to him but he was so self-centred too. This only made his tales more fun to read though. I couldn't help but giggle every time he declared 'Poop poop' with glee about his beloved cars.

A delightedly British story that is one every child and adult will delight in reading.

A lovely set of tales with Mole and his dear friends. I found this book wonderful and was delighted by each adventure. I also found the front cover exclusively inviting; could quite easily have dived straight into their world.

A VERY NIFTY LITTLE BOOK! 10 July 2010
By Schuyler V. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This little book is easy for a child to hold and has the entire unabridged text of WITW, so it is a great bargain; I just wish they had had pictures inside because the cover is so beautiful but for the price, it is a great buy. Enjoy!

Wonderful 29 Mar. 2010
By Rehbeckha - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my niece but havent given it to her yet because I want to read it! :) I flipped through some of the pages and fell in love with its early century british tone and fundemental good values of friendship and truth. I cant wait to read it to my niece and talk about how wonderful a friend Rat is to Mole and how Rats good treatment of his friend humbled him. What a wonderful story.

I really was wanting an adoreable story to read to my grandsons. This one is just precious. It is written and expressed in the UK vernacular. It is terribly cute and I highly recommend. The book was delivered on time and shipped well!
