Illustrated by Ernest H. Shepard
Don’t let the price tag fool you – this is the full-sized, unabridged original edition of The Wind in the Willows, complete with all the original Sheperd drawings. Introduce your children to all the wonderful creatures of the Wild Wood: Ratty, the river rat of upstanding courage and practicality; Mole, his loyal friend who’s dreamy sweetness will warm your heart; dear Mr. Toad who has much more money than sense but whose generosity and openness of heart redeem everything; and Mr. Badger, the acknowledged authority of the Wild Wood whose gruff, no-nonsense ways are often just the ticket in a pinch. The Wind in the Willows is a treasured classic that will live in your heart always. If I were forced to choose only 10 books to give a child, this would be one of them.
