Customer Review

on December 30, 2008
The Wind in the Willows is one of the all-time classic books. It is an evocative, haunting, pleasurable and sentimental treat. The illustrations by Inga Moore are simply stunning and complement perfectly the text by Kenneth Grahame. Many fine and outstanding artists have illustrated the book such as Michael Hague, Michael Foreman, Ernest Shepherd, Patrick Benson and Justin Todd. However, none have surpassed these sensitively drawn pictures with their range of colourful hues.
This book ranks along such classics as Black Beauty, the Alice books, Treasure Island, The Hobbit, The Secret Garden and Watership Down as a book that will always be read, enjoyed and appreciated.
The characterisation is perfect. Mole is hesitant, timid and dependable, Ratty is resourceful and in tune with the river, Badger is gruff, brooding and firm, Otter is a family 'man'and links Badger and the Wild Wood with Ratty and the Riverbankers and, of course, Toad who is irascible, bombastic, tempestuous, and, above all, loyal.
