The Wind in the Willows

Weitere Formate


The Wild Wood seems a terrifying place to Mole, until he finds it's full of friends - kind, sleepy Badger; brave and lively Ratty; and the irresponsible Mr Toad, famous for his wealth and his car smashes. But there are also the sinister weasels and stoats, and they capture Toad Hall when Mr Toad is in jail. How will he escape?
Kenneth Grahame was born in 1859. He grew up in Cookham Dene, Berkshire, in an idealised country cottage. Water meadows ran down to the River Thames; Grahame's passion for rivers can be seen in The Wind in the Willows. Kenneth went to school at St Edward's, Oxford. Prevented for family reasons from continuing on to university, he became a clerk at the Bank of England. By 1879 he belonged to several literary societies, and was writing pieces for papers, including the National Observer. A collection of his magazine articles were published in 1893: Pagan Papers. In 1898 he became Secretary to the Bank of England. Soon after, in 1899, he married Elspeth Thomson. Their son Alastair was born in 1900. It was on the evening of his fourth birthday that Kenneth Grahame first told his son a story about moles and water rats. This story was continued over the next three years, but it was only when Constance Smedley suggested that he make a book out of it that it took shape as The Wind in the Willows, and published by Methuen. The book was published on 8 October 1908. In 1931 Ernest H Shephard was asked to illustrate it, following his success with the illustrations in Winnie-the-Pooh. In 1908 Kenneth Grahame retired. In 1924 he moved to Pangbourne, where he lived until his death in 1932.

dickes Buch, kein Bild
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden aus Böblingen am 08.01.2015
Bewertet: Einband: Taschenbuch

Es ist ein ziemlich dickes Buch für ein Kind. Und es gibt kein einziges Bild drin, nur Text. Altersempfehlung ist 9-11 Jahre, ich würde aber nur für Kinder verschenken, wer wirklich sehr gern lesen. (ich habe es verschenkt, gelesen habe ich nicht)
