First published in 1908, The Wind in the Willows belongs to a golden age of children’s book. These charming tales of the riverbank, describing the adventures of Ratty, Mole, Badger and their irrepressible but conceited friend, Toad of Toad Hall, have become classics loved as much, perhaps, by adults as by children.

Kenneth Grahame: The Wind in the Willows

The River Bank

The Rat sculled smartly across and made fast

The Rat brought the boat alongside the bank

The afternoon sun was getting low

The Open Road

"I beg your pardon,"said the Rat slowly

After so much open air and excitement

The Toad never answered a word

The Wild Wood

Everything was very still now

It was already getting towards dusk

They were investigating one of the hummocky bits

Mr Badger

When supper was really finished at last

In accordance with the kindly Badger's injunctions

After luncheon, accordingly

Mr Toad

They arranged watches accordingly

Meanwhile, Toad was walking briskly

Toad's Adventures

With a quaking heart, Toad set forth cautiously

They had covered many and many a mile

The Further Adventures of Toad

A long half-hour passed

He had travelled some miles

When Toad had taken as much stew on board

Toad eagerly scrambled into the seat vacated by the driver

Like Summer Tempests Came His Tears

Now it was a very comforting point in Toad's character

He went back, very crestfallen, and told the Water Rat

They had just finished their meal

When the Badger had quite done

Toad slept till a late hour next morning

The Return of Ulysses

The affair was soon over

The following morning, Toad, who had overslept

Toad's Last Little Song
