This is the most beautiful telling of a tale that adults and children will adore. The narrator is perfect and warm for night time sleepiness! voices are quite distinct from each other and match the characters perfectly. Loved it loved it loved it! Zzzzz

At school my class read this book. Since I was a bad reader (haha, before audiobooks!) I didn't keep up and missed the story. So, I thought I would catch up, 40 years on. Better left as a vague memory, probably. What is this strange religious episode where a half-man half-goat demi-God rescues a baby otter - that Victorian throw back is conveniently deleted from the collective memory of this whimsical, children's story. Why the fame? Must be the character Toad. I know a man like him, I guess everyone does, and I guess that is genius.

Mole, Rat, Toad and friends are real personalities in Ralph Cosham's brilliant narration. All the joy and humor packed into this terrific story come through. Listening to Wind in the Willows with Christmas tree lights on and hot chocolate in hand has become a Christmas tradition for our family. Even our teens carve out 4 or 5 evenings during the season to settle in and enjoy.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Wind in the Willows to be better than the print version?
I tried reading the print version aloud, but it was this audio version that really did it justice and helped me see the poetry of the book. I loved listening while I did chores--it was entertaining, yet soothing.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Wind in the Willows?
Rat and Mole going out all night to look for the little lost otter.
What about Ralph Cosham’s performance did you like?
His performance, most especially his accents and voices, was outstanding.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Not necessarily. I enjoyed stringing it out and being able to listen to it in segments when I wanted to.
Any additional comments?
Thank you, Mr. Cosham, for this contribution.
