‘The Wind in the Willows’ is a true classic of Children’s literature. It was penned by Kenneth Grahame (1859 – 1932) and first published in 1908. Alternately slow moving and fast paced, it focuses on four anthropomorphised animal characters in a traditional bucolic version of the English Thames valley. ‘The Wind in the Willows’ is a novel notable for its adventure, mysticism, morality and unceasing camaraderie; loved and appreciated more than a century after its initial publication. This text contains an introduction by A. A. Milne, the famed author of ‘Whinnie the Pooh’ and various other Children’s poems. It is also accompanied by a series of dazzling colour illustrations by Arthur Rackham (1867-1939). One of the most celebrated painters of the British Golden Age of Illustration (which encompassed the years from 1850 until the start of the First World War), Rackham’s artistry is quite simply, unparalleled. Throughout his career, he developed a unique stule, combining haunting humour with dream-like romance. Presented alongside the text of ‘Wind in the Willows’, his illustrations further refine and elucidate Grahame’s masterful storytelling. Pook Press celebrates the great ‘Golden Age of Illustration‘ in children’s literature – a period of unparalleled excellence in book illustration. We publish rare and vintage Golden Age illustrated books, in high-quality colour editions, so that the masterful artwork and story-telling can continue to delight both young and old.

The ultimate in wilderness travel in western Canada This is the story of the author's travels and wildlife observations in all seasons of the year accompanied by his sometimes radical thoughts on wildlife preservation.

From its beginnings, the narrative flows like a clear, untouched wilderness stream, with lively riffles and quiet pools that give pause for reflection and perspective.
