Kenneth Grahame

Kenneth Grahame was born in Edinburgh as the son of a lawyer from an old Scottish family. Due to the alcoholism of his father, Grahame was brought up by elderly relatives. In the early years he lived with his family in the Western highlands.

When his mother died of scarlet fever, the children were sent to live with their maternal grandmother in the village of Cookham Dene, the chief setting of The Wind in the Willows. Grahame was educated at St. Edward's School, Oxford, and in 1879 he entered the Bank Of England.

The Wind in the Willows reflected the author's unhappiness in the real world - his riverbank woods and fields were ''clean of the clash of sex,'' as he said to Theodore Roosevelt. The main tale tells about Toad's obsession with motorcars.

Kenneth Grahame Book: "The Wind in the Willows"
First published in 1908, Kenneth Grahame's story of the riverbank adventures of Mole, Water Rat, Badger and the exasperating Toad has become a true classic of English literature, loved by children and adults alike.
This presentation of the well-loved children's story is in every way a classic, but it also retains a wonderful sense of fun. This hardback edition could charm any reader with its sheer quality, its thick pages and incredibly beautiful illustrations.
A breathtaking book, and a gift which would be endlessly appreciated.

Kenneth Grahame Audio Book: "The Wind in the Willows"
Portraying each character in his own inimitable fashion, Alan Bennett reads the original story of Ratty, Mole, Badger and - of course - Toad.
When I was bought this audio tape as a young child, I would leave it playing as I tried to sleep. As I listened to the classic story being read by the soft voice of Alan Bennett, I felt as though I were part of the story! I listened to it so often I learned it by heart! It really is a lovely tape for adults and children alike.
