Originally published: Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2012.
General Note
"One chapter, "The Piper at the Gates of Dawn," that appears in Kenneth Grahame's original story, has been omitted from this edition. Rather than relating the ongoing adventures of Ratty, Mole, Toad, Badger, and others, the chapter pauses the action and is largely about the god Pan from Greek mythology. Although the chapter is not included, Pan himself is present in this book: he appears fleetingly throughout." -- Tp. verso
Description
"Meek little Mole, willful Ratty, Badger the perennial bachelor, and petulant Toad. Since their first appearance over a hundred years ago in 1908, they've become emblematic archetypes of eccentricity, folly, and friendship. And their misadventures--in gypsy caravans, stolen sports cars, and their beloved Wild Wood--continue to capture readers' imaginations and warm their hearts long after they grow up. Begun as a series of letters from Kenneth Grahame to his son, THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS is a timeless tale of animal cunning and human camaraderie"--,Provided by publisher.
