Shy Mole, who dreams of an exciting new life by the endless River. Ratty, a friendly, unflappable, altogether civilized chap. Gruff Badger, who hates absolutely Everyone--except all his friend. And Toad. Ohh, Toad--glorious, crazy, doomed Toad: Toad the pampered braggart, Toad the desperate thief, Toad the haunted fugitive and the hero of his own silly dreams.
From buzzing summer days to winter's killing cold, from gentle picnics to deeds of might and daring, from wild escapes to meeting with a god...
Everyone should have a life like this--
And friends like these.

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.
