Description

Begun as a series of stories told by Kenneth Grahame to his six-year-old son, The Wind in the Willows has become one of the most beloved works of children’s literature ever written. It has been illustrated, famously, by E.H. Shepard and Arthur Rackham, and parts of it were dramatized by A.A. Milne as Toad of Toad Hall. A century after its initial publication it still enchants. Much in Grahame’s novel—the sensitivity of Mole, the mania of Toad, the domesticity of Rat—permeates our imaginative lives (as children and adults). And Grahame’s burnished prose still dazzles. Now comes an annotated edition of The Wind in the Willows by a leading literary scholar that instructs the reader in a larger appreciation of the novel’s charms and serene narrative magic.

In an introduction aimed at a general audience, Seth Lerer tells us everything that we, as adults, need to know about the author and his work. He vividly captures Grahame’s world and the circumstances under which The Wind in the Willows came into being. In his running commentary on the novel, Lerer offers complete annotations to the language, contexts, allusions, and larger texture of Grahame’s prose. Anyone who has read and loved The Wind in the Willows will want to own and cherish this beautiful gift edition. Those coming to the novel for the first time, or returning to it with their own children, will not find a better, more sensitive guide than Seth Lerer.

display_description No sight makes a man tremble more than seeing Mr. Toad behind the wheel of a car... On a fine summer day, Mole is busy spring cleaning his underground home. When he decides he's had enough of cleaning, Mole ventures towards a place he has never seen before - the river. There he meets Ratty, who takes Mole for a ride in his rowing boat. The two of them become close friends, and spend their time enjoying lazy days by the river. But then they make the mistake of visiting Mr. Toad. Toad is rich, exuberant, but also reckless. When he purchases his very first automobile, Toad, Ratty and Mole are plunged into a dangerous adventure involving theft, a prison break, and the famous siege of Toad Hall.
