The boastful, unstable Toad, the hospitable Water Rat, the shy, wise, childlike Badger, and the Mole with his pleasant habit of brave boyish impulse, noted "Vanity Fair" nearly a century ago, are types of that deeper humanity which sways us all. Written by Kenneth Grahame as bedtime stories for his son, "The Wind in the Willows" continues to delight readers today.
Basing his fanciful animal characters on human archetypes, Grahame imparts a gentle, playful wisdom in his timeless tales. Few readers will be able to resist an invitation to join the Wild Wooders at Toad Hall, enjoy a quick splash in the river with Rat and Badger, or take a swerving ride with Toad in a borrowed motor-car. This Modern Library Paperback Classic is set from the first illustrated American edition of 1913.
