The Wind in the Willows

The Wind in the Willows is a classic of children's literature by Kenneth Grahame.

The book made Kenneth Grahame's fortune, enabling him to retire from his hated (though respectable and well-paid) bank job and retire to the country, pretty much doing what the animal characters in this book do.

The story is alternately slow-moving and fast-paced, centering on three middle-aged male characters in bucolic England. It had illustrations by E. H. Shepard.
