"It is a book that breaks nearly every rule of modern children's fiction . . . it wasn't about fairies at the bottom of the garden, but it was about magic—just the right kind of magic. It thrills me still to read it." —Shirley Hughes, author, Alfie's World

"Now I have read it and reread it, and have come to accept the characters as old friends . . . Indeed, I feel about going to Africa very much as the sea-faring rat did when he almost made the water-rat wish to forsake everything and start wandering!" —Theodore Roosevelt

"A charming book." —Terry Jones, Monty Python member and author, Terry Jones' Barbarians

"It is in the same category as Great Expectations or Tom Jones, because despite its brevity and its simplicity it has a deep strangeness which is never dulled by successive readings." —Mark Haddon, author, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

The day that Mole abandons his spring-cleaning and sets out to enjoy the sunshine is the start of many adventures. Not only does he discover the river and the joys of messing around in boats, but he also makes lifelong friends with Rat, Badger, and the eccentric and incorrigible Toad.

Kenneth Grahame (1859–1932) is also the author of The Reluctant Dragon. The Wind in the Willows is based on letters and stories that Graham made for his only child, Alistair.
