Publisher's Summary

Since publication in 1908, The Wind in the Willows has established itself as one of the most popular children's books ever written. The animals Rat, Toad, Mole, Badger, and many more share their trials and tribulations as well as joys as they progress through the seasons of the year. The magical fantasy of their journeys starts on the river bank and goes to the heights of Toad Hall, a truly fine mansion of many secret passages. All children will delight and be taken away on the wings of imagination.

Unabridged (but dramatized)

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The narrator (David Thorn) is actually pretty good, and his style is good for kids (a little theatrical). I listened to the samples from several versions, and bought this because I felt Thorn would be the most interesting for my younger girls. Unfortunately, I didn't listen to enough of the sample. Thorn is the narrator, but the direct quotes of the animals are dramatized. No real problem there, but the accents/voices of mole and badger (I stopped listening when badger was introduced) are so strangely done as to ruin the whole production. Mole is done in a whiney, jarring style that is off-putting, and badger is done in a high-pitched scratchy voice that does not seem

The voices are off putting

Mole's voice is distracting and makes it hard to enjoy the listening! We found the one narrated by Derek Jacobi to be enjoyable!

Bizarre accents used in this narration

Listen to the whole of the sample before choosing to buy this. The narrator uses several voices. The narration is clear and suitable to the story, however, the voice he uses for the mole is American (why?) and the voice of the rat is working class. He has clearly misunderstood the point that the rat is well off and providing new experiences for the less well to do mole. These bizarre choices spoilt the story for me and I don't recommend it. If I'd listened to the whole of the sample I'd have found this out. Make sure you listen carefully before choosing to buy.
