The Wind in the Willows - Illustrated by Arthur Rackham, Paperback/Kenneth Grahame
Description This book forms part of our 'Pook Press' imprint, celebrating the golden age of illustration in children's literature. 'The Wind in the Willows' is a true classic of Children's literature, penned by Kenneth Grahame and first published in 1908. Alternately slow moving and fast paced, it focuses on four anthropomorphised animal characters in a traditional bucolic version of the English Thames valley - a novel notable for its adventure, mysticism, morality and unceasing camaraderie. This text contains an introduction by A. A. Milne, the famed author of 'Whinnie the Pooh' and various other Children's poems. It is also accompanied by a series of dazzling colour illustrations by Arthur Rackham (1867-1939). One of the most celebrated painters of the British Golden Age of Illustration, which encompassed the years from 1900 until the start of the first world war, Rackham's artistry still delights both young and old over a century later. Presented alongside the text, his illustrations further refine Grahame's masterful storytelling.
