Favorite book of all, lots of lovely annotations. More useful to read about the book than to read the story itself. ( )

I never read this as a kid because by the time I discovered it, I was already 9 or 10 and too embarassed to be caught reading a "kiddie" book. What nonsense! I'm 40 now and reading unabashedly. What a delightful and charming book.
I melted into giddy bliss last night when I came upon this passage:

"Never in his life had he seen a river before-this sleek, sinous,full-bodied animal, chasing and chuckling, gripping things with a gurgle and leaving them with a laugh, to fling itself on fresh playmates that shook themselves free, and were caught and held again. All was a-shake and a-shiver-glints and gleams and sparkles, rustle and swirl, chatter and bubble. The Mole was bewitched, entranced, fascinated. By the side of the river he trotted as one trots, when very small,by the side of a man who holds one spellbound by exciting stories; and when tired at last, he sat on the bank, while the river still chattered on to him, a babbling procession of the best stories in the world, sent from the heart of the earth to be told at last to the insatiable sea."

Sigh. This is now my all time favorite bookd. Ever. I already know it's never going to be replaced.
Another laugh out loud passage is after suffering an intervention by his friends being locked up for his own good (for horrible dangerous driving) , Toad makes a run for it and then STEALS A CAR! . .."the old passion seized on Toad and completely mastered him, body and soul. As if in a dream, he found himself somehow, seated in the driver's seat; as if in a dream,...all sense of right and wrong, all fear of obvious consequences, seemed temporarily suspended...As the car devoured the street and leapt forth on the high road through the open country, he was Toad once more, Toad at his best and highest, Toad the terror, the traffic queller, the Lord of the lone trail, before whom all must give way or be smitten into nothingness and everlasting night.
The Wind in the Willows is good for the soul. It has been a long time since I have laughed out loud at a book and since I have been so charmed, so delighted. I'm sorry to find there isn't much else out there by Kenneth Grahame. I know I shall re-read this once a year and whenever I need someting to smile about.(less) ( )

The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame is a classic of British children's lit, filled with the remarkable adventures of the Rat, the Mole, the Badger, the Otter and, of course, Toad of Toad Hall. I loved this annotated edition, the copious notes of which do everything from defining words more-or-less out of use now (surely everyone knows "repast" means "meal," though!) to showing how a particular choice of words or phrase links Grahame's great work to masterpieces of the past from Shakespeare to the Bible to Homer to Woodsworth to Wilde. The front essays provide a history of the story, a biography of the man, an appreciation of the work (by Brian Jacques) and a comparison of the major illustrators in editions from the original 1908 publication to the 1940 edition (illustrated by Arthur Rackham, who died before completing the project). End pieces include the complete texts of the letters (to his young son) in which Grahame wrote the germs of the story and sometimes whole chapters, critical responses and early reviews, with several appendices too. Illustrated throughout with samples of the original artists' work, along with illustrative photographs and other appropriate material. The story itself is the first and best thing, of course, but all the extra material is quite terrific too! ( )

The Mole had been working very hard all the morning, spring- cleaning his little home. First with brooms, then with dusters; then on ladders and steps and chairs, with a brush and a pail of whitewash; till he had dust in his throat and eyes, and splashes of whitewash all over his black fur, and an aching back and weary arms. Spring was moving in the air above and in the earth below and around him, penetrating even his dark and lowly little house with its spirit of divine discontent and longing. It was small wonder, then, that he suddenly flung down his brush on the floor, said `Bother!' and `O blow!' and also `Hang spring-cleaning!' and bolted out of the house without even waiting to put on his coat.
