Catalogue Note

"It can be seriously argued that [The Wind in the Willows] is not a children's book at all. Despite the presence of Rat, Toad, Mole, and Badger as central characters, it can be read as an account of threat of social change and the destruction of rural England, and of the response of a generation..." (Peter Hunt, Oxford DNB)
