Book cover
By: (1859-1932)

In "Wind in the Willows," Kenneth Grahame takes readers on a delightful journey through the English countryside with a cast of charming anthropomorphic animals. The story follows the adventures of Mole, Rat, Toad, and Badger as they navigate the ups and downs of friendship, love, and loyalty.

Grahame's writing is beautifully descriptive, painting vivid images of the natural world and bringing the characters to life with colorful personalities. The pacing of the novel is perfect, with just the right balance of action, humor, and heartfelt moments.

One of the standout features of the book is the message of the importance of friendship and the value of loyalty. The bond between the four main characters is heartwarming and serves as a powerful reminder of the importance of standing by those we care about.

Overall, "Wind in the Willows" is a timeless classic that will captivate readers of all ages. Grahame's storytelling is as enchanting as ever, making this a must-read for anyone looking for a cozy and heartwarming tale.

Book Description:
The Wind in the Willows is a classic children's book--enjoyed by all ages!--by British novelist Kenneth Grahame, first published in 1908. Begun as letters to his 7-year-old son Alistair and later developed into a novel, it tells the adventures of animals Mole, Rat, and Toad, who dwell, along with Badger, Otter, and other animals, in the riverbank, fields, and woodlands of the English countryside. Best friends Mole and Rat, along with Badger, are continually rescuing Toad from his scrapes. An encounter with nature god Pan lends a special magic to this tale.

In 2011, I recorded this delightful reading by my friend Sarbaga Falk. We made presents of the recordings for Sarbaga’s family and our friends and their children and grandchildren; and had it in mind to put it on. Shortly after we recorded Wind in the Willows, Sarbaga was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s, which worsened until she passed away in February 2020.

Sarbaga loved tales, jokes, and stories, and she would no doubt be tickled to listen to this wonderful tale told in her own inimitable and expressive voice. This stands as a fitting tribute to our dear friend, as she continues to delight us all.
