Publisher's Summary

"...there is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats." So says Rat, as he welcomes the lonely Mole to the community of the River. Whether messing about in boats, touring in Toad's motorcar, or simply relaxing at home, Mole, Rat, Otter, Toad, and Badger demonstrate the honorable human characteristics of kindness, patience, and tolerance toward all that have made this classic tale beloved by generations since it was first published in 1908. Narrator Terry Jones of Monty Python fame produced a version of The Wind in the Willows for British television in 1995.

The Wind in the Willows (Unabridged)

This was an excellent reading of one of my favourite children?s story of all times. The toad was as full of life and energy as always, the characters and surroundings of the riverbank really came alive. It is lovely to have all of the book rather than just the bits used in the dramatisations. I would strongly recommend this version to both those who know and love the book and those who have never come across it.

Brilliant!

I've been looking for an unabridged version of the Wind in the Willows since listening to an Alan Bennett version on cassette when I was younger. After hunting around for ages I was delighted to discover this Terry Jones version. I love him as an actor and knew he would give life to the characters in his reading and I wasn't disappointed. His characters voices are all unique so you can tell who is speaking at the time and wonderfully paced although the narration its self maybe a little fast to start with but you get used t o it pretty quickly. Children and adults alike will definitely enjoy this animated reading of this classic book.
