First published in 1908, The Wind in the Willows belongs to a golden age of children’s book. These charming tales of the riverbank, describing the adventures of Ratty, Mole, Badger, and their irrepressible but conceited friend, Toad of Toad Hall, have become classics loved as much, perhaps, by adults as by children.

This is one of the best books written for both adults and children. The prose are rich and poetic. The characters engaging and the adventure pure fun. Martin Jarvis' voice makes this story a pleasure to listen to again and again. It is only too bad it is an abridged version. Although well edited I wanted to hear it in it's entirety.
Love the narration and character voices - especially Toad's! This is one my favorite stories and was thrilled with its reading. Next time I will make sure to download the unabridged version so I can enjoy the whole story!
