About The Wind in the Willows
One spring morning, Mole abandons his spring cleaning and surfaces into the sunlight and warm grass of a great meadow. Rambling busily along the hedgerows he comes all at once to the edge of a river. Mole is entranced. Here in the river bank he meets the Water Rat, Ratty. Mole stays with Ratty in his snug waterside home where the river laps at the sill of the window and here he meets Ratty’s friends: Badger who lives in the Wild Wood and the incorrigible Toad of Toad Hall. A timeless tale of waterside Britain that has been loved by generations of children and acclaimed as a classic, the story of Mole, Ratty, Badger, Toad and their escapades, whether messing about in the river or puttering about in Toad’s shiny new car, cannot fail to enchant the audience. Bennett adds his own distinctive touch to the telling of the story, making it more for the adults without bewildering the children.
