In the end, Grahame triumphantly succeeds in conveying his most precious theme: the miracle of loyalty and friendship.

"Readers young and old exult in The Wind in the Willows. It is a classic according to Ezra Pound's definition, because it possesses 'an eternal and irrepressible freshness'." (Anne Lunden, Constructing the Canon of Children's Literature)
Yes, and I have, many times. It always brings me back to that first time I read it, as a little girl, imagining myself right there with Mole and Ratty in their adventures.
I saw pictures in my mind, like a movie screen in my head, as she spoke, it was so expressive.
This recording brought a childhood favorite back to life for me. I was sick in bed as an adult, unable to even read my old favorite for myself, so hearing this aloud was a great comfort and delight.
My taste vary. I love a good, blood stained horror, but also a well written kids story. Lots of Sci-Fi, but also Hist. Fiction. No boring!!!
I listened to one cd that I burned and had to give up. I have decided that there are too many good books to listen to boring stuff. I know this is a kid book, but I really can't imagine a kid listening to this for long. With illustration it might be great, but not to just the ear.
