The adventures of Ratty, Mole, Badger, and Toad of Toad Hall. The Wind in the Willows appeals to both children and adults, but for different reasons. Children love the zany Toad of Toad Hall and his frantic escapades. Adults appreciate the lyrical, superlatively wistful descriptions of the rustic English landscape. Everyone recognises the values of loyalty and friendship that resonate throughout its pages.That is why The Wind in the Willows has been recognised, for more than 100 years, as one of the greatest books of all time. Now you can have this incomparable story read to you. This audio version is completely faithful to the original novel.

Yes. The story is relevant no matter how old you are. The reader adds just the right amount of character differentiation. His changes in voice make the characters live as you listen. This story is just uplifting. It makes me feel good!
I love the field mice stopping by mole's hole and the mole and rat getting lost in the woods and then finding badger's den. You can apply any number of your human friends to these characters. The toad is arrogant and conceited but likeable; the mole tries to make everyone happy, and rat is the solid fixer we all wish we could be.
No. This is my first but I like his style so hope to find other books he is reading.
Nothing particular. I just like the entire storyline.
"By far a genius piece of work!"
Kenneth Grahame is genuinely a fantastic author and this novel simply proves it. It was one of my favourites as a child and now I'm in my twenties it is still in my top three books of all time.
I've read the book, seen the films and now finally I've listened to the book being read by another via this audio book. I truly love it and cannot recommend enough.
