About the Author
Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, Kenneth Grahame (1859–1932) spent his childhood in Cookham, England, along the River Thames and near Quarry Wood, the inspirational and idyllic setting for his most famous book, The Wind in the Willows, published in 1908. As a young man, he worked for the Bank of England while writing stories for periodicals that were eventually published under his own name in three collections: Pagan Papers (1893), The Golden Age (1895), and Dream Days (1898)—this latter volume containing the well-known story “The Reluctant Dragon.”

It's partly a peaceful pastorale with gentle-mannered humor between Rat, Mole, and Badger. And it's part hilarious adventure when that rascal Toad makes an appearance. And it's part adventure in the tale of the Norwegian rat. And part magical, from the subtle magic of the woods to the high magic of the Piper. Some of these chapters don't fit together, and for my taste, Toad's antics are way more funny than all the other characters. Grahame ties it all up at the end with a satisfying one-for-all, all-for-one battle scene.
