Back to School Week: Wind in the Willows GIVEAWAY

The Wind in the Willows
by Kenneth Grahame 

The tales of Ratty, Mole, Badger and Toad. When Mole goes boating with the Water Rat instead of spring-cleaning, he discovers a new world. As well as the river and the Wild Wood, there is Toad's craze for fast travel which leads him and his friends on a whirl of trains, barges, gipsy caravans and motor cars and even into battle. 

This story captivated my child-mind in a way few others did.  From the moment I picked it up I was completely enthralled, and it was a constant childhood companion.  And you may notice one of the main characters is a rat -- I think Rat may very well have paved the road to my slight rattie obsession, as well as this very blog.  So when I saw a beautiful copy at my Friends of the Library book sale, I knew it was meant for a giveaway for one of you -- what better way to share my love of reading and children's literature than with one of the books that started it all?

Just fill out this form for your chance to win.  
Ends Aug 31.

This week, why not share some of your childhood favorites with a child?  
You never know; years from now, they might be dedicating their book to you...


  1. I never read this one. It's because in my childhood, I was seldom introduced English story books. Most of it was Malay language. But this one sounds great!

  2. This sounds so familiar to me, but I don't remember ever reading it.

  3. This sounds so familiar to me, but I don't remember ever reading it.

  4. I love tales, thanks for hosting :)

Tell me all your thoughts.
