Reviews: 

“A stunning sequel to Kenneth Grahame’s 1908 children’s classic.... Written in an old-fashioned vernacular that feels similar to the original, this pastiche is simply enchanting.... The whole package is a gem.”— Lauren Daley, book columnist for The Standard-Times of New Bedford

 “Nobody who ever read The Wind in the Willows wants it to ever end. Thank you, Frederick Thurber, for this delightfully worthy sequel, in a fresh new setting, and with gorgeous artwork by Amy Thurber.  I love it!”— Sy Montgomery, author of How to Be A Good Creature and The Soul of an Octopus
