    " Read this book with my 7yo son and saw myself in his eyes. It is a timeless classic children's book. The animals can be easily replaced with humans and you could get a book that would feel like a Scott Fitzgerald story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jill Keen | 2/19/2014

    " My all time favourite book. From the first time I heard the story when my mum read it to me a chapter a night, to now some 40 years later when I read it every year. It will always hold a special place in my heart. Oh and I know we all associate with one of the characters, well I'm mole! "

    " An excellent book read long back that I would surely like to read again. "

    " if you've never read this book then you must! Mr. Toad is fantastic! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alison | 2/5/2014

    " I absolutely adored this book as a child and have every intention of reading it to my own children. It is a classic "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Holly | 1/28/2014

    " No one needs my rehashing of this turn-of-the-twentieth-century children's book, but my love for it has burned steadily for fifty years. Oh, how I wanted to be out with Mole and Ratty messing about in boats, and how I enjoyed Toad's worrying exploits. His behavior was satisfyingly naughty and his friends couldn't curb him. How delightful! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 I . | 1/15/2014

    " This book was a bit old and I think I would recommend it to for me and I really didn't know what the problem or exciting part was "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sophie | 12/24/2013

    " A sweet book I read whilst being "the judge" in a play version of Toad of Toad Hall "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 B-zee | 12/4/2013

    " Fabel anak-anak, yang katanya terbaik sepanjang masa. Tidak menyangkal, memang fabel ini selain menghibur juga mengandung makna yang mendalam secara tersirat. Setting, perwatakan, dan kejadiannya dapat diasosiasikan dengan manusia di sekitar kita, bahkan diri kita sendiri. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 James Allen | 11/27/2013

    " The Wind in the Willows is an a children's tale that adults should also enjoy. The Barnes and Noble classics edition gives needed background information on the book and Kenneth Grahame. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenni | 8/21/2013

    " I read this with my girls. And we loved it! Obviously, I explained a lot of things, but they LOVED wild Toad's escapades and even learned a few values too. I would definitely recommend it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cameron | 5/2/2013

    " There are lots of colours. The story made me feel happy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe | 11/2/2012

    " I really enjoyed "The Wind in the Willows". Even though it is considered a children's book I found myself absorbed by the adventures on Toad, Rat, Badger and the other animals. For me it was one of those books that you're sorry to see finished. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kimi | 9/28/2012

    " this was a entertaing book "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anu | 6/20/2012

    " I think I expected too much from the book. It was just an ok book for me. It is basically about a mole befriending a water rat. While staying with his new friend, mole gets to meet Toad, Beaver, Otter etc. Some parts of the book was real cute and I liked toad,, but some parrts were really boring... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda Horn | 2/28/2012

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elaine | 8/23/2011

    " I'm so glad to finally check this book off the list. It is one of those books that I feel I "should" read, but don't really like. The only thing that made it bearable was listening to Jim Weiss's audio version of it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 6/17/2011

    " Read with James my baby son "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barb G | 6/7/2011

    " My right year old son gives this four stars. I rather enjoyed reading it, too, with the animals' grand ways of speaking and Toad's songs. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill | 5/22/2011

    " Really enjoyed reading this with my 7 year old and 4 year old daughters. Great characters, great descriptions and a beautifully warm tone. The illustrations in this edition are great, they match the book well -- I don't think my 4 year old would have tracked with the story without the illustrations. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Callie-shea | 5/11/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 5/4/2011

    " I listened to an audio version of this, and found it somewhat entertaining. The best chapters are those with the toad.

    Fine book for children (advanced reading level), lots of lessons that can be learned, though they use "ass" about 12 times. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leopold | 5/4/2011

    " A classic. Every bit as good when reading it in my adult life as it was in my youth. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 4/30/2011

    " Where have I been all my life? I had never read this book and didn't know what I was missing! The whimsical descriptions, the characters, and the charming pastoral setting make it a delightful escape. I can only wish I had read it as a kid; guess reading it now is the next best thing! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erin | 4/17/2011

    " Such a cute story... could read it over and over again. and it would be a quick read if I didn't read it on my phone. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amber | 4/14/2011

    " I never read this as a kid, but I kind of wish I had. I loved books about animals that were pretty much people (Redwall, anyone?) and this was really good. The characters were funny and the book made me laugh pretty much throughout. "

About the Author
Author Kenneth Grahame

Kenneth Grahame (1859–1932), Scottish-born author, was raised by his grandmother in Berkshire, England, along the banks of the Thames River. He was educated at Oxford and then worked for the Bank of England. As a pastime, he wrote light nonfiction and articles for newspapers. The Wind in the Willows, originally written as letters to his son, established him as a writer of children’s books and had a deep influence on fantasy literature.
