Publisher's Summary

One spring morning, Mole abandons his spring cleaning and surfaces into the sunlight and warm grass of a great meadow. Rambling busily along the hedgerows, he comes all at once to the edge of a river. Mole is entranced. Here on the river bank he meets the Water Rat.

Mole stays with the Water Rat in his snug waterside home where the river laps at the sill of the window and here he meets Ratty's friends: Badger who lives in the Wild Wood and the incorrigible Toad of Toad Hall.

A timeless tale of waterside Britain that has been loved by generations of children and acclaimed as a classic. The story of Mole, Ratty, Badger, and Toad and their escapades, whether messing about on the river or puttering about in Toad's shiny new car, cannot fail to enchant every listener.

Many of the original cast from Alan Bennett's acclaimed National Theatre production appear in this dramatization for BBC Radio 4, including Richard Briers as Rat, Adrian Scarborough as Mole, and Terence Rigby as Albert, with Alan Bennett as the narrator.

Phenomenal rendition of a classic

I have listened to the wind in the willows unabridged and it is one of my all time favorites. This theatrical rendition is terrific in style, presentation and performance. A must listen for fans of the book.

Good vocal adaptation

Ot is a vocal adaptation, a bit like the archers, though this does mean that there is no description of you like that kind of thing. A great listen for those who like scripts and plays. I listened to this in a few days as it is very short - only 2 hours. There are 4 half-hour chapters. Overall it was a great story just very posh.
