“This is my favourite book of all time. Perhaps it is the very timelessness of the tale that makes it so appealing.” Carrie King

‘There are certain books that become a permanent part of your life . . . The Wind in the Willows, published 100 years ago this year, is one of those books. I first read Kenneth Grahame’s classic when I was 14, and I have been going back to it ever since. I just read it again, and its wonders seem greater than ever, its colors more glowing, its language more miraculous. Although it is uniquely mixed in style and matter, moving effortlessly from deadpan observation to piercing lyricism to raucous comedy to incantatory mysticism, it is a complete world. And like the old friend that it is, it always welcomes you back.’ Gary Kamiya,

“The Wind in the Willows is the perfect before bed book . . . But, much as I love Toad, I could never do without Badger’s reassuring presence or the inspiring example of Rat and Mole, who together are able to embrace the world around them with a confidence they never could alone. It is as close to perfect, I think, as a book can be.” The Captive Reader

"One does not argue about The Wind in the Willows. The young man gives it to the girl with whom he is in love, and, if she does not like it, asks her to return his letters. The older man tries it on his nephew, and alters his will accordingly. The book is a test of character. We can't criticize it, because it is criticizing us. But I must give you one word of warning. When you sit down to it, don't be so ridiculous as to suppose that you are sitting in judgment on my taste, or on the art of Kenneth Grahame. You are merely sitting in judgment on yourself. You may be worthy: I don't know. But it is you who are on trial." AA Milne

THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS is one of the most magical children’s books of all time, which will delight adult readers too. Presented in a beautiful edition specially designed for kindle, this is Kenneth Grahame’s masterpiece which will stay with you forever. Read it as it was meant to be presented in this 100th anniversary edition.
