These audio editions, especially dramatised for BBC Radio, are of timeless stories that have enchanted generations of readers both young and old. The wonder and excitement of these much-loved tales live on in these acclaimed full-cast dramatisations, complete with evocative music and sound effects. The story of Ratty, Mole, Badger and Toad's escapades, from messing about on the river to poop-pooping in Toad's shiny new car, was vividly brought to life in Alan Bennett's stage adaptation at the National Theatre in 1990, which captured the imagination of a new generation, and introduced many to Kenneth Grahame's classic book for the first time. This BBC Radio 4 full-cast recording features many of the members of the National Theatre production - among them Richard Briers, Leslie Phillips and Terence Rigby - and is narrated by Alan Bennett himself.

About Kenneth Grahame

Kenneth Grahame was born in Edinburgh on 8 March 1859. He was brought up by his grandmother in Cookham Dene in Berkshire and went to school in Oxford before starting work at the Bank of England. He was unable to go to university because of his family's lack of money. His stories and essays were initially published in periodicals such as the "Yellow Book "and then collected together as "Pagan Papers" (1893). This was followed by "The Golden Age" (1895) and "Dream Days" (1898). "The Wind in the Willows" (1908) is based on letters and stories that Graham made for his only child, Alistair. The novel's popularity grew slowly over the years and A.A. Milne's dramatisation of the novel as "Toad of Toad Hall" brought it greater success. Kenneth Grahame died on 6 July 1932.
