This is the much-loved classic tales of Ratty, Mole, Badger and Toad. When Mole goes boating with Ratty instead of doing his spring-cleaning, he discovers a whole new world. As well as adventures on the river and in the Wild Wood, there are high jinks on the open road with that reckless ruffian, Mr Toad of Toad Hall. Ratty, Mole, Badger and Toad become the firmest of friends, but after Toad's latest escapade, can they join together and beat the wretched weasels once and for all? "The Wind in the Willows" by Kenneth Grahame is one of the twelve wonderful classic stories being relaunched in "Puffin Classics" in March 2008.

    Comments about Puffin Classics : The Wind in the Willows:

    What a timeless tale! So beautifully written, full of colourful characters and delightfully described scenery. It's easy to imagine sitting by the riverside, reading this book, surrounded by Badger, Mole, Toad and all the other great characters from the story.
    A childhood favourite that still captures the imagination and delights the reader no matter what age they are. Highly recommend and please, introduce your kids to this classic piece of literature.
