Many of the original cast from Alan Bennett's acclaimed National Theatre production appear in this special dramatisation for BBC Radio 4 including Richard Briers as Rat, Adrian Scarborough as Mole, and Terence Rigby as Albert with Alan Bennett as the narrator. A wonderful, highly-acclaimed dramatic performance of a classic novel.

Brilliant story brilliantly cast and all the characters/animals have personalities just like people we all know - so cleverly observed. Made me want to re read the original.

The Ultimate Dramatisation

What did you like most about The Wind in the Willows (Dramatised)?

I love this dramatisation of the wind in the willows it is the best i have heard of this classic story with a full cast and sound effects you wont find any better than this production.

Who was your favorite character and why?

All the characters of the wind in the willows are my favourite but i do love toad as many will agree as he seems to be everyones favourite.

What does Dramatisation bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

The cast members make this dramatisation come to life as does the sound effects i suppose its a complete package. The songs are great and its probably the best version of this classic tale.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I have listened to this many times and i even bought the audio CD from amazon.

Any additional comments?

I will never get tired of listening to this dramatisation its just fantastic.

Charming - Not just for kids

This is an excellent production. Some of Britain's best contempory actors give voice to some wonderful animal characters. Music and sound effects add to this production's ability to transfer you to the Wild Wood, the Open Road or to Toad Hall. Slow and gentle, its great for even young children, while being well-crafted enough to smooth the brow of a harrassed adult.

My first kid friendly audio book

I needed a change of pace from what I regularly download, and so I chose this beloved children's classic. Though I like the musical numbers, I'm slightly disappointed that the Piper at Dawn chapter got omitted. Anyway, I chose wisely, I think.
