“In this edition the well-known children’s book illustrator Eric Kincaid has fulfilled his ambition to illustrate The Wind in the Willows. He has brought a new dimension to the story with his delicate style, his eye for detail and his amusing touches. They add a fresh charm and make The Wind in the Willows all the more enchanting to a younger age-group.
With the aim of reaching a wider range of readers, the text has been lightly abridged. Some of the most difficult words have been simplified and the longer sentences split for ease of reading and understanding. Two chapters from the original edition have been omitted. They are self-contained and in no way interrupt the sense or flow of the story.”
