Kenneth Grahame’s treasured and perennially popular The Wind in the Willows follows the adventures of Mole, Rat, Toad and Badger as they spend their time ‘simply messing about in boats’, getting lost in the Wild Wood and getting Toad out of scrapes. The endearing characters, evocatively idyllic setting of the gentle Thames Valley and the message of friendship make this an enduringly heart-warming tale.
The FLAME TREE COLLECTABLE CLASSICS are chosen to create a delightful and timeless home library.
Though born in Edinburgh, Kenneth Grahame (1859–32) moved, along with his siblings, to Cookham Dean, Berkshire, at the age of 5 to live with his grandmother. It is here that Grahame was introduced to the riverside and boating, no doubt providing inspiration for the evocative setting of the bedtime stories that he later told his son Alastair and which led to his famous novel, Wind in the Willows (1908).
