When a Mole meets a Rat by the riverbank, one of the greatest friendships in literature begins…. The Wind in the Willows, loved by children and adults for over 75 years, is many things: a fable; a pastoral idyll; a picaresque comedy; a rollicking adventure story. But above all it is a story of the loyalty, kindness, and gentleness of friendship. In A Breeze in the Willows, restless Mole, steadfast Rat, brave Badger, and flighty Toad return to the riverbank, the wild wood, and the open road. Author Allen Johnson, Jr. and artist Roger Michell evoke the friends and their world in charming verses and beautiful watercolors that are fresh and simple - and as familiar, sweet, and true as the classic that inspired them.
A book to enjoy again and again, A breeze in the Willows will be treasured by anyone whose life has been enriched by Kenneth Grahame's timeless masterpiece, The Wind in the Willows.
