9780006478737: The Willows in Winter (Tales of the Willows)

For now, in an act of homage and celebration, William Horwood has brought to life once more the four most-loved characters in English literature: the loyal Mole, the resourceful Water Rat, the stern but wise Badger, and, of course, the exasperating, irresistible Toad. The result is an enchanting, unforgettable new novel, enlivened by delightful illustrations, in which William Horwood has recaptured all the joy, magic, and good humor of Grahame's great work - and Toad is still as exasperatingly lovable as he ever was.

Review:

"The old characters pop back to life as you begin reading."--"The New York Times" "Faithful to the original...Festive...A winsome winner."--"The Chicago Tribune" ""The Willows in Winter "transports us back to that familiar rivery world almost as authoritatively-- and entertainingly-- as a sequel by Grahame himself."--"Atlanta Journal Constitution" "Patrick Benson's cross-hatched illustrations seem to have been lovingly guided by the hand of Ernest Shepard, whose 1931 drawings of "The Wind in the Willows "continue to transport young readers to meadow, riverbank, and wildwood."--"Cleveland Plain Dealer"

From the Back Cover:

William Horwood takes the listener to a new enchantment in this delightful sequel to 'The Wind in the Willows'.

'My friends', said the Badger, 'we are gathered here today to celebrate the memory of…of the Great and Noble Mole…'

The more Badger intoned on the sadness of passing, and the bleak comfort of memory, and the darker and more snowy it got, the sadder and more mournful the group became.

But would this ghastly, sombre moment ever have been reached, were it not for Toad, that terrible, shocking, insufferable Toad of Toad Hall, taking to the air in wild and wilful adventure that sweeps him from the River Bank into the Wild World, there to plummet to his own particular doom.

And can all of Kenneth Grahame's beloved animals come through in 'The Willows in Winter' to home and hearth again…? To hear once more the soft splash of oars in the water as Ratty ventures his boat out on to the River in the sun of Springtime…

'I am a Toad extraordinaire, a magnificent Toad! None is my equal. What creature, has ever showed such capacity, such brilliance, as I have today?!'
