The Wind in the Willows : Illustrated by John Burningham, Hardback Book

The Wind in the Willows : Illustrated by John Burningham Hardback

Illustrated by Mr John Burningham


The most popular children's book ever written, lovingly illustrated by John Burningham.

Kenneth Grahame began to tell the tale of the river bank on the night of his son's fourth birthday, but what started out as a short bedtime story soon grew into one of the most enjoyable series of adventures ever to be told in children's literature.

The entertaining exploits of the book's four intrepid heroes - Mole, Water Rat, Badger and the incorrigible Toad - have captured the imagination of generations of children. This beautiful edition is illustrated by renowned picture book artist John Burningham, whose wonderfully evocative line drawings marry perfectly with Graham's vivid text.

There are twelve glorious full-colour scenes, full of detail, to enjoy over again and again.
