    DescriptionThis timeless story opens with Mole leaving his spring-cleaning and going above ground to explore the world beyond his burrow. Making friends with Ratty, the two become inseparable and together they spend long summer days enjoying the delights of the river and its banks. Then they meet the impetuous Toad and the distinguished though slightly stern Mr Badger and find themselves caught up in a series of adventures to rescue Toad from his own reckless behaviour and return him safely to Toad Hall. Stolen cars, prison sentences, daring escapes, and dastardly villains all feature in this classic tale of high-adventure and rock-solid friendship. The Wind in the Willows is a story full of beautifully-drawn characters. It is cherished from one generation to the next and so makes a perfect choice for a gift book as it will be enjoyed in equal measure by those tucked up in bed hearing the story for the first time and those who remember many of its lines fondly as they read the story aloud for their young listeners. Now available with a set of 32 beautifully illustrated character cards, perfect for playing family-favourite games such as snap or pairs.

    Review quote
    This book is simply sublime. What an amazing gift book, and what an addition to a child's library. David Roberts' transformation of this classic tale is outstanding, and has brought a totally different experience of The Wind in the Willows to old sceptic me librarymice.com blogger In this sumptuous new gift edition, award-winning illustrator David Roberts puts his own distinctive spin on a much-loved classic. Roberts' atmospheric, richly-coloured illustrations perfectly capture the timeless, wistful feel of Kenneth Grahame's text, and his animal characters are appealingly quirky and eccentric. A beautiful new edition of a favourite book to read together and to treasure. www.booktrust.org.uk Beautifully re-imagined through the incredibly detailed, retro illustrations of David Roberts. One of the season's most beautiful gift books Bookseller Finally, a beautiful gift edition... full of colourful illustrations... another book which should be on every child's bookshelf.
