Publisher's Description

In a beautiful single volume, Inga Moore’s magical illustrations bring Kenneth Grahame’s much-loved classic to life for a new generation of readers.

Kenneth Grahame’s classic tale of the pleasures of country life and the dependability of good friends will never grow old. Now, in this splendid volume, Inga Moore recaptures its scenes and its characters with richly patterned and warmly detailed illustrations. Here, drawn with charming freshness, are impulsive dear Mole, rash Mr. Toad, reclusive Badger, and sensible Rat, so happy just "messing around in boats." And here are the most treasured moments from THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS - Mole’s first enraptured row on the river, Toad’s irrepressible adventures in and out of automobiles, and many more. So gather ’round to read or listen, and, as Mole and Rat would heartily agree, a fine time will be had by all.

Author Bio

Inga Moore says that illustrating Kenneth Grahame’s famous story was both great fun and a great challenge. "THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS is such a wonderful book that I never tire of reading it. I couldn’t possibly let it down, so I had to do my best work ever." Of the wayward Mr. Toad, she adds, "He is a celebration of the life we would lead if only we could."

Editorial Reviews

[A]n elegantly designed volume ready to take its rightful place on any child’s bookshelf.
—Kirkus Reviews

Grahame’s early-20th-century classic is enhanced by lovely watercolor illustrations that provide a contemporary and packed-with-charisma accompaniment. ... Ranging from small vignettes to full-bleed double pages, the artwork embellishes almost every spread, engaging independent readers and reeling in younger listeners with entertaining antics, gentle humor, and genial affection.
—School Library Journal

There's a lot of humor in [Roberts'] offbeat artwork, and he does a fine job of conveying the warmth and coziness of the worlds within the legendary riverbank and Wild Wood of the novel. ... It’s a well-designed book (not surprising, coming from Candlewick as it does), and it would lend itself well to a parent-child one-on-one reading, especially as an introduction to the famous tale.
