The Wind in the Willows

Glyn Maxwell, Kenneth Grahame

PaperBack (10 Jul 2015)

‘There’s nothing – absolutely nothing – half so much worth doing as messing about in boats.’
A spot of spring cleaning on a sunny English riverbank – so begins the adventures of four beloved friends. Follow  Mole, Ratty, Toad and Badger on their journey through riverside picnics, wild woods, jailbreaks, car chases and cross-dressing amphibians to save Toad Hall from disaster and get little Mole home.

Will the foursome triumph? And will everybody learn their lessons? A delightful tale of camaraderie and joy. Poop poop!

A new adaptation of The Wind in the Willows, a classic children’s novel notable for its mixture of mysticism, adventure, morality, and camaraderie and celebrated for its evocation of the nature of the River Banks.

'Glynn Maxwell’s adaptation catches the wistful tone of Kenneth Grahame’s writing – “a feeling in the air of change and departure” – more subtly than most.
...It’s a weeping version of the Willows that feels less like furry pantomime than Chekhov with whiskers.' Alfred Hickling, The Guardian

'consistently witty dialogue...Adults are certainly not neglected in Glyn Maxwell's adaptation of Kenneth Grahame's classic.' Carole Baldock, What's On Stage

Accomplished writing' Dave Jennings, British Theatre Guide
