This much-loved story follows a group of animal friends in the English countryside .The chief characters - Mole, Rat, and Toad - generally lead upbeat and happy lives, but their tales are leavened with moments of terror, homesickness, awe, madcap antics, and derring-do. Although classed as children’s literature, The Wind in the Willows holds a gentle fascination for adults too.
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.

I haven't gotten it on my phone yet but I've read the first few pages and I'm at the toad house part, and I have no clue what's going on. It's extremely wordy and kinda hard to understand but I'm still giving it a chance.
A thoughtful, beautiful story
An exciting tale- amazing, captivating! And moments of beautiful description- Mr. Grahame writes eloquently, putting feelings to words with ease. I would definitely recommend it to middle schoolers and up- grownups too! It tells of emotional and physical conflict and a worthy read.
