Publisher's Summary

This quintessentially English novel is considered by many to be a masterpiece of storytelling. Set for the most part on a riverbank in rural England, against a backdrop of social, agricultural, and industrial change typical of the early 20th century, Kenneth Grahame's portrayal of the anthropomorphic characters (which include Mole, Ratty, Badger, Otter, and, of course, the incorrigible Mr. Toad) is imaginative, lyrical, and without doubt uniquely humorous. Above all, in this work, the writer strikes a deep and resonant chord of human emotions. There are other audio versions of The Wind in the Willows; however, this rendering brings a fresh, clear, and enthusiastic narration inspired by a lifelong affection for the book.

Brilliantly read

A truly wonderful rendition of this children's classic, beautifully read by Chris MacDonnell. His clear diction and classically British voice does the story great justice. His character voices bring the whole thing to life. He has several more narration to his credit and I will be looking out for more. Fabulous reason to spend money!!,

A fantastic reading of a timeless classic

What made the experience of listening to The Wind in the Willows the most enjoyable?

As a child I have fond memories of not only reading ‘The Wind in the Willow’s but also being in a school production of the story. To hear Chris MacDonnell’s reading of this timeless tale brings back so many memories. Chris’s rich, charming tone, combined with the wonderful voices he creates for each character make for a very easy and enjoyable listen. I’d recommend this audio to anyone, be that parents, kids, or those, like myself who enjoy this timeless classic.
