Summary

The Wind in the Willows allows every person who has always wished animals could talk to dream a little more. In this amazing book, Toad, Ratty, Mr. Toad and Badger form a tight friendship and have many adventures. At the beginning of the book, Mole is busy spring cleaning is home when he suddenly decides he is simply sick of the job and that he wants to see what the big world outside his home is really like. He discovers the world is a busy, crazy place and it takes a while for him to adapt. While he is wandering along the river, he meets his first friend, Ratty. Ratty is fun-loving and has a relaxed attitude about life. He tells Mole he will show him the world and proudly shows Mole how much fun life along the river can be. Ratty does not like new things, though, so he and Mole learn some things together. Mr. Toad is the next friend they meet. He lives in Toad Hall and is smart and kind, but he is also spoiled and believes he is the most important person in the world. He likes doing new things and gets obsessed over motor cars and houseboats. His wild ways get him into trouble several times. The final friend in the group is Badger. He lives alone and he likes it that way. Badger does not want anyone to bother him and has little use for company. Mr. Toad’s father was Badger’s best friend and he is disappointed in how Mr. Toad is living his life. The Wind in the Willows is full of fun and adventures for the best friends. It has serious themes at times, such as Mr. Toad and his prison time, but mostly it is a timeless story of friends who will do anything for each other. Children of all ages are enchanted by the thought of talking animals that have very human-like adventures together. This is definitely a cannot-go-wrong title for all ages!

The wind in the willows

- Reading

The best friend was mad about how mr. Toad lived his life and didn’t like the way he lived his life mr toad lived in prison and that’s why the best friend was mad at him for not living a good life

- Terrible voice acting of characters!

I couldn’t listen to this reading, which was highly disappointing as I love the book, because the man reading it did such a God awful job on character voices. He made them sound cartoon-like, which is all together inappropriate for this classic.

Good book and very good job of reading the book. Note to the people who insulted the reader, remember he isn't getting paid, didn't have to take his the time to read the whole book or come up with several voices. WHAT DO YOU EXPECT JIM DALE!!

- The Wind In The Willows read by Mark Smith

I delight in and adore this book! I love the way Mark Smith does the voices for each character. It is evident that he also loves this book. When I am sad or unable to sleep I put it on and it brings me great comfort. Thank you Mark Smith for this production!
