Depicting the adventures of Rat, Mole, Badger and the pretentious Mr Toad, The Wind in the Willows sees these four animals getting into all sorts of trouble as they wander along the river, through the Wild Wood and around the grand Toad Hall.

Adapted for the stage by A.A. Milne as Toad of Toad Hall, and recreated for film and TV numerous times, Kenneth Grahame’s tale has been an essential part of every English child’s formative reading for over a century, with new generations of readers succumbing to its charm, wit and wonder.


  • A book that we all greatly loved and admired and read aloud or alone, over and over and over.

    Christopher Robin Milne

Kenneth Grahame

A British writer most famous for The Wind in the Willows, Kenneth Grahame (1859–1932) worked at the Bank of England before retiring due to ill health. Grahame also wrote The Reluctant Dragon – which, like The Wind in the Willows, was adapted as a Disney film.
