The Wind in the Willows is a novel written by Kenneth Grahame and first published in 1908. It was very successful on its release and has become a classic of children's literature in English.
This is the story of an affable and homely Mole, who tired of spring cleaning goes out for a walk to the outside world. There, he meets a really cultured Water Rat with literary pretensions. Both hit it off really well, they establish friendship and the Mole stays there to live, where he will meet other characters that inhabit the surroundings: the good-natured and rich Toad, the extroverted Otter or the hermit Badger.
The story was invented by Grahame to entertain his son as a child. The boy chose the animals and his father developed them and created the story. Humorous and somewhat poetic in tone, The Wind in the Willows is an ode to the simple life and friendship. After the success of the book in its publication, the writer was able to leave his job and move to live in the country.
