Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame – (Free Audio Book)
This free audio book is The Wind in the Willows in which Kenneth Grahame paints a vivid picture of life by the river bank for English gentlemen (albeit with striking resemblances to toads, badgers, water voles and moles) in the early twentieth century.
The Wind in the Willows follows three of the friends- mole, ratty and badger as they try to save their reckless pal, toad, from himself. Toad is one of the great characters of English literature and we meet him as he falls in love with the motor car. His urge for new-found rapidity sets toad, the story and listeners off at breakneck speed.
A fantastic tale of obsession, fun and scares but above all friendship. Read by Adrian Praetzellis
