The Wind in the
Willows

by Kenneth Grahame
Illustrated by Robert Ingpen

Kenneth Grahame’s classic tale was first published in 1908, and children and adults alike fell in love with the timid Mole, the friendly Water Rat, the erudite Badger, the mischievous Toad, and a host of other unforgettable creatures. The quiet life they lead on the banks of the River Thames is interspersed with adventures, normally instigated by Toad, who has a propensity for trouble, and whose sudden and all-consuming passion for motor cars eventually results in his being kept ‘a helpless prisoner in the remotest dungeon of the best-guarded keep of the stoutest castle in all the length and breadth of Merry England.’ His escape dressed as a washerwoman and his journey home to Toad Hall are among the most familiar and best-loved escapades in children’s literature.

Over the years, the animals’ adventures have been brought to life by many artists, including E. H. Shepard, who illustrated the original edition, and Arthur Rackham. This magnificent new edition brings the story to life with more than 70 new illustrations by award-winning artist Robert Ingpen, so fans of all ages can relive – or enjoy for the first time – this heart-warming tale.

Illustrator Robert Ingpen was born in 1936 in Geelong, Australia, and still lives and works nearby in Barwon Heads. He studied illustration art and book design at The Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology. In 1986 he was awarded the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for his contribution to children’s literature and he has been honoured with Membership of the Order of Australia. A world-renowned artist and author, Ingpen has designed, illustrated and written more than one hundred books, including his highly acclaimed series of illustrated Children’s Classics, which have now been published in many editions around the world. www.robertingpen.com
