The Wind in the Willows is a children's novel by Scottish novelist Kenneth Grahame, first published in 1908.

Since its beginnings as a series of stories told to Kenneth Grahame's young son, The Wind in the Willows has gone on to become one of the best-loved children's books of all time.

The timeless story of Toad, Rat, Mole, and Badger has delighted readers of all ages for more than eighty years. Friendly Rat, mild-mannered Mole, wise Badger, and kind - but conceited - Toad all live on the banks of the Thames.

While Mole and Rat are content to go out in a row boat or travel the roads in a caravan, Toad prefers the excitement of motor cars. He's already wrecked seven ! While his friends try to keep him out of trouble, his passion for cars eventually results in his being caught and kept prisoner in the remotest dungeon of the best-guarded castle in all the land. Somehow, he has to escape and get home but what will he find when he gets there ?

The Wind in the Willows is a book for those "who keep the spirit of youth alive in them; of life, sunshine, running water, woodlands, dusty roads, winter firesides." So, wrote Kenneth Grahame of his timeless tale of Rat, Mole, Badger, and Toad.
