It is another wonderful story - beautiful, unique, warm, innocent, and satisfying.
His style and content are true to Kenneth Grahame's original, without being a cheap imitation, and Horwood's book can be read independantly of The Wind in the Willows.
Even though the characters were there, it just lacked something in the dialogue and conversations between the characters.
If you loved The Wind in the Willows, this book is, finally, the perfect sequel. In tone, substance and story, a match for the classic original. Enjoy!Published 2 months ago by Agawam Hunt
I'm a big fan of William Horwood and The Wind in the Willows, and he was commissioned to carry on the Willows world which he does very well. A very good read.Published 2 months ago by Lauren Hotchkiss
