Book The Making of the Wind in the Willows

Download or read book The Making of the Wind in the Willows written by Peter Hunt and published by Bodleian Library. This book was released on 2018 with total page 0 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Wind in the Willows has its origins in the bedtime stories that Kenneth Grahame told to his son Alastair and then continued in letters (now held in the Bodleian Library) while he was on holiday. But the book developed into something much more sophisticated than this, as Peter Hunt shows. He identifies the colleagues and friends on whom Grahame is thought to have based the characters of Mole, Rat, Badger and Toad, and explores the literary genres of boating, caravanning and motoring books on which the author drew. He also recounts the extraordinary correspondence surrounding the book's first publication and the influence of two determined women - Elspeth Grahame and publisher's agent Constance Smedley - who helped turn the book into the classic for children we know and love today, when it was almost entirely intended for adults.Generously illustrated with original drawings, fan letters (including one from President Roosevelt) and archival material, this book explores the mysteries surrounding one of the most successful works of children's literature ever published.

Book excerpt: Immerse yourself in the charming and whimsical world of "The Wind in the Willows" by Kenneth Grahame. This beloved classic follows the adventures of four endearing animal friends-Mole, Ratty, Toad, and Badger-along the tranquil rivers and lush countryside of Edwardian England. The story begins with Mole, who, tired of his solitary life, ventures out of his underground home and discovers the delights of the riverbank. There, he meets Ratty, a water-loving rodent who introduces him to a life of boating, picnics, and leisurely days. The two friends soon encounter the wealthy and impulsive Toad, whose obsession with motorcars leads to a series of reckless escapades and comedic mishaps. As Toad's antics land him in trouble, the wise and reclusive Badger steps in to offer guidance and support. Together, these four friends navigate the joys and challenges of life, from Toad's daring escape from prison and the subsequent battle to reclaim Toad Hall from a band of marauding weasels, to the quieter moments of camaraderie and reflection by the riverbank. Each character brings their own unique personality and perspective, creating a rich tapestry of friendship, loyalty, and the simple pleasures of rural life.
