9781517207342: The Wind In the Willows: Illustrated

The Wind In the Willows is a children's novel/fable by Kenneth Grahame, first published in 1908. Notable for its mixture of mysticism, adventure, morality, and camaraderie and celebrated for its evocation of the nature of the Thames valley. Grahame took inspiration when he spent his time by the River Thames doing much as the animal characters in his book do—namely, as one of the phrases from the book says, "simply messing about in boats"—and wrote down the bed-time stories he had been telling his son Alistair. In 1909, Theodore Roosevelt, President of the United States, wrote to Grahame to tell him that he had "read it and reread it, and have come to accept the characters as old friends". In 2003, The Wind in the Willows was listed at number 16 on the BBC's survey The Big Read.

About the Author :

Kenneth Grahame was a Scottish writer best-known for his celebrated children s novel, The Wind in the Willows. Prevented from attending university because of financial constraints, Grahame instead took a job with the Bank of England, which provided the financial security required to indulge his passion for writing. Many of Grahame s short stories were printed in the periodicals of the time, and were also later collected in Pagan Papers, The Golden Age, and Dream Days. Grahame s most famous work, the novel The Wind in the Willows, was originally conceived as a bedtime story for his son, and continues to be a beloved classic for children of all ages. Grahame died in 1932 at the age of 73.
