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.
