The Wind in the Willows - Kenneth Grahame

What an utterly charming book! I managed to never read this growing up, and I so wish I had - it was a lot of fun. The writing made me laugh out loud more than once. I know Mr. Toad is a very popular character, and I can certainly see why; I slightly preferred Mole though, as he seemed like a sweeter, nicer character overall. I truly wish this book was the first in a series, as I'd love to read more stories about these characters. A book well deserving of its status as a classic. Highly recommended.


  1. I remember loving this book. I must read it again soon.

    I hope you have a great year of reading in 2015!

  2. Hi Cleopatra! I do wish I had read this when I was actually part of the target audience, I would have loved it then too. I wish you all the best in 2015 reading too! :)
