Description

The Wind in the Willows is one of the most familiar and best-loved of the great milestones of children's literature. It is the story that Michael Foreman has always wanted to illustrate, and his enthusiasm for the tale is conveyed in luminous, vibrant artwork. This fully illustrated and unabridged edition brings a fresh perspective to the timeless tale of the river bank, introducing Ratty, Mole, Mr Badger and of course the irrepressible Toad, to a new generation of children.

Author Biography

Kenneth Grahame (1859-1932) was born in Edinburgh, the son of a lawyer, but was brought up by his grandmother in Cookham Dene, in Berkshire. He later worked at the Bank of England and, while pursuing his career there, he wrote occasional poems, essays and sketches. His masterpiece, The Wind in the Willows, was published in 1908. Michael Foreman's numerous books for children have earned him widespread recognition as one of the world's leading illustrators. He has worked on a vast range of children's books, and has collaborated with Terry Jones on all of his books for children. He also writes and illustrates his own books, including War Boy and War Game, winners of the Kate Greenaway Award and Smarties Book Prize respectively, and After the War was Over. More recently he has illustrated The Knight and the Squire and The Lady and the Squire, both by Terry Jones. He has also illustrated the classic stories Peter Pan and Wendy, The Wind in the Willows and Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, all published by Chrysalis Children's Books.
