Take a Wild Ride With David Petersen Through A New Limited-Edition Illustrated Wind In the Willows
Experience the timeless story of Toad, Rat, Mole, and Badger in a beautiful new hardcover The Wind In The Willows designed and illustrated by New York Times Bestselling author and Eisner Award-winning creator David Petersen. Painstakingly illustrated over three years, this special edition features both color and pen and ink illustrations throughout and Petersen will be hand-signing each copy of the 1st printing.
Since its first publication in 1908, generations of adults and children have cherished Kenneth Grahame’s classic, The Wind in the Willows. For in this entrancing, lyrical world of gurgling rivers and whispering reeds live four of the wisest, wittiest, noblest, and most lovable creatures in all literature—Rat, Mole, Badger, and Toad of Toad Hall. Like true adventurers, they glory in life’s simplest pleasures and natural wonders. But it is Toad, cocky and irrepressible in his goggles and overcoat, whose passion for motorcars represents the free and fearless spirit in all of us; just as it’s Toad’s downfall that inspires the others to test Grahame’s most precious theme—the miracle of loyalty and friendship.
The Wind In The Willows sets the standard for animal-themed novels and is the inspiration for Redwall, Watership Down, and David Petersen’s marquee series, Mouse Guard.
The Wind In the Willows will be in stores this October.
