The Wind in the WillowsRobert Ingpen
This timeless tale has never been out of print and is one of the best-loved children's titles in English literature. Kenneth Grahame's wonderful imagination and quiet humour continue to charm children and adults alike, and Robert Ingpen's stunning illustrations bring to life the adventures of Toad, Mole, Ratty and Badger.
When the Mole leaves his spring-cleaning and heads up into the open air, he embarks on a series of exhilarating adventures with his new friends: the laid-back Ratty, the gruff yet kindly Badger and the self-satisfied, irrepressible Mr. Toad. The impulsive Toad leads the friends from one escapade to the next - from upturned gypsy caravans to stolen motorcars, a daring prison escape and, finally, to a heroic confrontation with the sinister inhabitants of the Wild Wood.
Now retold in picture book form by Karen Saunders - with stunning artwork by Robert Ingpen.
