First published in 1908, 'The Wind in the Willows' soon established itself as an enduring favourite with readers of all ages; and today Kenneth Grahame's evocation of an Edwardian rural idyll of boating, picnics, country houses, steam trains, horse-drawn caravans and the open road, and of a time when the motor car was still an exciting rarity, has lost none of its power to enchant.

On this splendid new recording by Richard Briers, we can once more follow the fortunes of some of the best-loved characters in children's fiction âe" the unassuming Mole, the spirited and adventurous Water Rat, the wise old Badger and, above all, the conceited and bombastic Mr Toad âe" in the classic tale the Kenneth Grahame dedicated to all those 'who keep the spirit of youth alive in them; of life, sunshine, running water, woodland, dusty roads, winter firesides'.
