This is a re-creation of the much-loved world of Kenneth Grahames "The Wind in the Willows". William Horwood, author of the "Duncton" trilogies, brings to life the characters of Badger, Water Rat, Mole and Toad.
For now, in an act of homage and celebration, William Horwood has brought to life once more the four most-loved characters in English literature: the loyal Mole, the resourceful Water Rat, the stern but wise Badger, and, of course, the exasperating, irresistible Toad. The result is an enchanting, unforgettable new novel, enlivened by delightful illustrations, in which William Horwood has recaptured all the joy, magic, and good humor of Grahame's great work - and Toad is still as exasperatingly lovable as he ever was.
