The Wind in the Willows is a book for those "who keep the spirit of youth alive in them; of life, sunshine, running water, woodlands, dusty roads, winter firesides." So wrote Kenneth Grahame of his timeless tale of Rat, Mole, Badger, and Toad, in their lyrical world of gurgling rivers and whispering reeds, a world which is both beautiful and benevolently ordered. But it is also a world threatened by dark forces--"the Terror of the Wild Wood" with its "wicked little faces" and "glances of malice and hatred"--and defended by the mysterious Piper at the Gates of Dawn. In the end, Grahame triumphantly succeeds in conveying his most precious theme: the miracle of loyalty and friendship. This tale of four friends and their adventures is a timeless classic that will inspire and delight listeners of all ages.

What a delight! As an adult I listened to this audiobook driving and found myself laughing out loud at the clever English humour, witticisms with accompanying animal voices, and grinning foolishly through traffic jams! Not just for kids!

A lovely audio edition of a wonderful, peaceful, funny work. For everyone, not only children.

A wonderful classic with charming characters that delight adults and children alike. This version is happily unabridged, but I still prefer the version read by Marvin Jarvis. Mary Woods does a nice job of reading here, her voice is clear and well paced. But the voices of the individual characters tend to all sound the same to me, and lack personality when compared to Marin Jarvis' version, but perhaps another listener will appreciate her subtlety more.
