Far from fading with time, Kenneth Grahame's classic tale of fantasy has attracted a growing audience in each generation. Rat, Mole, Badger and the preposterous Mr Toad (with his `Poop-poop-poop' road-hogging new motor-car), have brought delight to many through the years with their odd adventures on and by the river, and at the imposing residence of Toad Hall.

Grahame's book was later dramatised by A. A. Milne, and became a perennial Christmas favourite, as Toad of Toad Hall. It continues to enchant and, above all perhaps, inspire great affection.

The Wind in the Willows is a book for those 'who keep the spirit of youth alive in them; of life, sunshine, running water, woodlands, dusty roads, winter firesides.'

About Kenneth Grahame

Kenneth Grahame, 1859 in Edinburgh geboren, musste nach dem Tod seiner Eltern nach Oxford übersiedeln. Da er sich ein Studium nicht leisten konnte, trat er in die Dienste der Bank von England, wo er bis in den Vorstand aufrückte. 1907 gab er seine Position aus gesundheitlichen Gründen auf. Inzwischen hatte er sich mit Erzählungen, ursprünglich für seinen Sohn geschrieben, einen Namen als Autor gemacht. Zu seinen berühmtesten Werken zählt die Geschichte vom Fluss "Der Wind in den Weiden", ein Klassiker der Kinderliteratur. Grahame starb 1932 in Pangbourne.
