The Wind in the Willows, by Kenneth Grahame, illustrated by Michael Hague, hardcover (very good condition), First Edition Thus


The Wind in the Willows is a children's novel by Scottish novelist Kenneth Grahame, first published in 1908.  It focuses on four anthropomorphised animals: Mole, Rat (a European water vole), Toad, and Badger. They live in a pastoral version of Edwardian England.  Since living with his good friend Rat, Mole has been away from his home, Mole End, for quite some time. But with the help of Rat's unwavering determination, Mole End is rediscovered and the empty place is transformed into a haven of warmth and contentment for Mole, Rat, and the cheerful field mice who come a-caroling. Michael Hague's wondrous, all-new paintings capture the tenderness and magic of this cherished story.
