The Wind in the Willows
by Kenneth Grahame
Open iTunes to Buy
Far from fading with time, Kenneth Grahame's classic tale of fantasy has attracted a growing audience in each generation. Rat, Mole, Badger and the preposterous Mr Toad, have brought delight to many through the years with their odd adventures on and by the river, and at the imposing residence of Toad Hall.
The book itself needs no introduction and Richard Briers reading does it justice. For me, he is to Wind in The Willows what Stephen Fry is to Harry Potter and Tony Robinson is to the Discworld. I couldn't imagine listening to this read by anyone else. However, please note this is an abridged version contrary to the iTunes listing.
