    The Wind in the Willows is full of fun and adventures for the best friends. In interviews he has trenchantly suggested that Grahame was homosexual, that young Alastair had been profoundly emotionally damaged from birth, and that The Wind in the Willows is a coded manifesto for communal gay living. An iron bell-pull hung by the side, and below it, on a small brass plate, neatly engraved in square capital letters, they could read by the aid of moonlight MR. Initially overawed by the hustle and bustle of the riverbank, he eventually adapts. Although they are unnamed, the leader is referred to as "Chief Weasel".

    First, it is the work of a writer who had known considerable success in the s as a young contemporary of Oscar Wilde, and who was also an admired contributor to the literary quarterly The Yellow Book. He manages to board a railway engine manned by a sympathetic driver, which is then pursued by a special train loaded with policemen, detectives and prison warders. Chapter 6 - "Mr. With the arrival of spring, Badger visits Mole and Rat to take action over Toad's self-destructive obsession.

    Ratty is fun-loving and has a relaxed attitude about life. He can be stubborn when it comes to doing things outside his riverside lifestyle, but can do which must be done as shown when he risks his safety to help Mole in the Wild Wood and to help free Toad Hall from the weasels. When the characters err, they are prompt to acknowlege it, and so a reading of this book can model good behavior to children, who will otherwise be enchanted with the many ways in which the lives of these bucolic characters differ from modern life. He also has the power to manipulate minds, making the animals forget what they saw. The country lay bare and entirely leafless around him, and he thought that he had never seen so far and so intimately into the insides of things as on that winter day when Nature was deep in her annual slumber and seemed to have kicked the clothes off. He manages to board a railway engine manned by a sympathetic driver, which is then pursued by a special train loaded with policemen, detectives and prison warders.

Not another word, but scrape--scrape and scratch and dig and hunt round, especially on the sides of the hummocks, if you want to sleep dry and warm to-night, for it's our last chance! The Mole's cap was missing from its accustomed peg. In the side of what had seemed to be a snow-bank stood a solid-looking little door, painted a dark green.

Parents will appreciate the themes of loyalty, manners, self-restraint, and comradeship which are evident throughout the book. Thus, they place him on house arrest, guarding him one at a time.

The dusk advanced on him steadily, rapidly, gathering in behind and before; and the light seemed to be draining away like flood-water. At that point, Grahame was employed by the Bank of England but, still in his 20s, was publishing stories in literary magazines, work that became collected in Dream Days and an even more successful publication, The Golden Age Ratty loves the river and takes charge of Mole.

On their second day of travel, the caravan is run off the road by a fast-moving automobile. In this story, the Pied Piper uses his pan flute music to lure rats away from a city. Still dressed as a washerwoman, he convinces the driver to let him drive, and soon wrecks the vehicle again.

The faun invites the man to his house, and offers him food and drink to bolster his strength. Toad" Later in the spring, Badger asks Mole and Rat to help him confront Toad about his dangerous automobile habits. Then as it grew it took a regular rhythm, and he knew it for nothing else but the pat-pat-pat of little feet still a very long way off.

For what has actually changed by the end? Toad accepts the plan, and easily escapes thanks to his ridiculous outfit. Squirrels and rabbits, who are generally good although rabbits are described as "a mixed lot". Then he called 'Moly! Some ten minutes' hard work, and the point of the Rat's cudgel struck something that sounded hollow.

In this way, Pan offers another articulation of Grahame's ideas on nature, which he communicates in various ways throughout the novel.

Feigning illness, Toad bamboozles the Water Rat who is on guard duty at the time and escapes. I think I really enjoyed reading this book, anyone can read it, very funny, exiting, in some parts of the story it sort of gets suspenseful and you can make it into a play!

His motoring craze degenerates into a sort-of addiction that lands him in the hospital a few times, subjects him to stiff fines for his unlawfully reckless driving, and eventually gets him imprisoned for theft, dangerous-driving, and gross impertinence to the police.

It's a long way, and he wouldn't be at home at this time of year anyhow, and he'll be coming along some day, if you'll wait quietly. Rat wakes to find Mole gone. Twigs crackled under his feet, logs tripped him, funguses on stumps resembled caricatures, and startled him for the moment by their likeness to something familiar and far away; but that was all fun, and exciting.

He learns that in his absence, Toad Hall has been taken over by weasels and stoatsbut Badger knows that Toad Hall has a secret tunnel entrance, and the interlopers are evicted in a climactic battle, followed by a celebratory banquet. He persuades the reluctant Rat and willing Mole to join him on a trip.

He makes up for his earlier excesses by seeking out and compensating those he has wronged, and the four friends live out their lives happily ever after. Badger does not want anyone to bother him and has little use for company. Let's have a look at the leg.

The Mole fell backwards on the snow from sheer surprise and delight. Meantime the Rat, warm and comfortable, dozed by his fireside. Toad wouldn't mind coming here by himself, would he?The Wind in the Willows study guide contains a biography of Kenneth Grahame, literature essays, a complete e-text, quiz questions, major themes, characters, and a full summary and analysis.
