The Wind in the
Willows by Kenneth Grahame
This book is about a few
animals. These animals are the main characters, and they are
the Mole, the Water Rat, the Toad, and
the Badger. Most of this book is about Toad's adventures, and only 2 or 3 chapters and
about Mole and the Water Rat.
The book begins with
Mole spring cleaning his house, and then he pops out
of his hole and walks to the water, where he
meets the Water Rat. The Water Rat invites him
onto a boat, and they go to a picnic. When they return, Mole wanted to
row the boat and it capsized.
also meet the Toad, and he is a bit
crazy. When the 3 friends go to town, Toad sees
a motor car and is obsessed with it.
Badger pays Mole and Rat a visit, and tells them that Toad has ordered a motor
car at Toad Hall(Toad's house).
Toad tries to drive it, but crashes.
Badger, Mole, and Rat "ground" Toad and keep him locked in his
room, and work in shifts to make sure nothing happens to
Toad. Then, when Mole
and Badger are out, and Rat in on guard,
Toad makes an excuse for Rat to go out, then
dresses up in his clothes and climbs out
of the window, and goes to town. From there, the next few chapters of the
book is about Toad's adventures.
When Toad returns,
Toad Hall is being squatted by weasels and ferrets, and together, the four friends create a
plan to get it back.
This is a good
book, and long as well.
