About the Author

Kenneth Grahame (1859-1932) was inspired to write The Wind in the Willows based on bedtime stories he had been telling his young son, Alastair. The book was published in 1908 to instant acclaim. David Roberts is the author-illustrator of the Bertie Books and the illustrator of many books for children, including Paul Fleischman's The Dunderheads, which was short-listed for the Kate Greenaway Medal; its sequel The Dunderheads Behind Bars, also by Paul Fleischman; and The Dumpster Diver by Janet S. Wong. David Roberts lives in London.

Reviews

Inga Moore's illustrations lend a luminous air to the tale of Mole, Mr. Toad, Badger and Rat in Kenneth Grahame's The Wind in the Willows, abridged by Moore. She uses delicate pen-and-ink drawings and watercolor wash to convey framed images of cobblestone streets, spot illustrations of Badger's welcoming hearth and wide framed expanses of the countryside.

[A]n elegantly designed volume ready to take its rightful place on any child's bookshelf.
--Kirkus Reviews

Grahame's early-20th-century classic is enhanced by lovely watercolor illustrations that provide a contemporary and packed-with-charisma accompaniment. ... Ranging from small vignettes to full-bleed double pages, the artwork embellishes almost every spread, engaging independent readers and reeling in younger listeners with entertaining antics, gentle humor, and genial affection.
--School Library Journal There's a lot of humor in [Roberts'] offbeat artwork, and he does a fine job of conveying the warmth and coziness of the worlds within the legendary riverbank and Wild Wood of the novel. ... It's a well-designed book (not surprising, coming from Candlewick as it does), and it would lend itself well to a parent-child one-on-one reading, especially as an introduction to the famous tale.
