About the Author
Kenneth Grahame (1859-1932) was a British writer, most famous for his children's classics The Reluctant Dragon (1898) and The Wind in the Willows (1908).

Inga Moore says that illustrating Kenneth Grahame's famous story was both great fun and a great challenge. "THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS is such a wonderful book that I never tire of reading it. I couldn't possibly let it down, so I had to do my best work ever." Of the wayward Mr. Toad, she adds, "He is a celebration of the life we would lead if only we could."
