The Wind in the Willows is one of the books from my childhood that I remembered hearing bits and pieces of, but had never actually read. In the recent past, I had an old tattered paperback copy of the story that I kept in my car for emergency reading that was destroyed when it suddenly rained one afternoon while my windows were down. I was devastated by the destruction of the book and, sadly, could not save it. I had only read about 30 pages of this classic.
When I saw the announcement that Canterbury Classics was releasing the beautiful Word Cloud Classics edition of this timeless story, I knew we had to include it as a featured book in Paperback Bookshelf. This beautiful copy deserves a spot on any bookworm’s bookshelf, and we’re proud to include a copy of it on ours. With its colorful illustrations and soft leather cover, it’s impossible not to fall head-over-heels in love with this edition.
