The Wind in the Willows, a classic children’s tale by Kenneth Grahame, was a roaring success as the featured title in the June, 2019 Paperback Bookshelf subscription. The beautiful edition, a Word Cloud Classic, has a soft, flexible leather binding imprinted with words and phrases from within the book. The illustrations by Arthur Rackham are beautiful.

Also included in June’s box was the deliciously-scented moisturizing body spray, named “Toad Hall” in honor of Mr. Toad from the book. Scented with bamboo and coconut, the body spray leaves a light, energizing fragrance behind. The spray isn’t greasy on the skin and absorbs well.

A snackable item is always included, and subscribers received “Cattails” in the form of a bag of gluten-free pretzel sticks from Snyder’s. The bonus item was a vintage frog-themed magnet from Button & Things CA, an Etsy shop.

Which of the included items is your favorite? Would adding the featured book to your shelves begin your obsession with Word Cloud Classic editions (as it has for me), or will it be a beautiful addition to an existing collection?

Remember that you can grab previous boxes from the gift shop. Availability is limited.
