One of the best-loved children's books of all time is updated for a new generation in a beautifully designed gift edition liberally illustrated by David Roberts.
The story begins when Mole abandons his spring cleaning to explore the world beyond his burrow. He scurries down to the riverbank, where he meets Ratty and discovers a carefree world of picnics and messing about in boats. There are adventures ahead, in the company of reckless Mr. Toad, and dangers, when the two friends venture into the Wild Wood to visit Mr. Badger. And there are events that test the friendship of the four animals to the limits, but through it all they retain their loyalty and good humor. Generations have fallen in love with Kenneth Grahame's enduring story and here, in a sumptuous new gift edition stunningly illustrated by David Roberts, The Wind in the Willows stands poised to capture young readers hearts anew.
