The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Re-read now to make up for reading it a long time ago.
What did I think about it? The adventures of Toad, that inestimable peerage of nobility and intelligence?
Unlike the other classic I just finished, these talking animals have little to do with religion or politics other than a cameo performance from Pan. And that was just a little last minute grace. :)
So what did I think about the whole book? It's a comic buddy novel with very loud and distinctive Victorian animals having adventures, watching Toad get into trouble or eventually getting Toad out of trouble, or otherwise enjoying rashers of bacon.
Funny? As in Three Men in a Boat funny? Perhaps. But this one is absolutely a children's novel, too. And quite fun. :)
