One of the most celebrated works of classic literature for children

When Kenneth Grahame first entertained his son with letters about a petulant character named Toad, he had no way of knowing that his creation – together with his friends Mole, Rat, and Badger – would delight children for nearly 100 years. Here they are once more, pursuing adventure in gypsy caravans, stolen sportscars, and prison, but always returning to their beloved Wildwood. And although Grahame s characters are unmistakably animals, they remain endearingly human in their eccentricity, folly, and friendship.

  • First time in Penguin Classics
  • Includes an introduction and notes by the children's literature historian Gillian Avery
  • Features an appendix of Grahame's original letters to his son about the adventures of Toad

"It is what I call a Household Book . . . a book which everybody in the household loves, and quotes continually ever afterwards; a book which is read aloud to every new guest."
