   and I'm so glad I chose this one
The book is not reduced, contrary to what one review said, which is misleading. I was looking for an illustrated edition for my children, and I'm happy I chose this one. The illustrations are great. The paper of the book is thick and smooth and I was happy to see that. A very good edition of a very good book.

   Moore's illustrations transport the reader to Graham's whimsical version of the pre-WWI 1908 world
Inga Moore's illustrations make this edition of The Wind in theWillows worth five stars. The world of Kenneth Grahame has not been captured by any of the other illustrators of this book. Moore transports the reader to Grahame's pre- WWI 1908 world of well- stocked, well- furnished homes and country estates. It is a world to be looked at often.

   Illustrations that make the story new again
Normally I don't like books that are too short, but this illustrated version makes the story contemporary with illustrations that are wonderful. I bought a copy for myself after buying copies for my friends. It's great to give a classic that attracts the attention of the readers. Excellent!

I have been listening to this recording with my daughter since she was a baby. The narrator's ability to change voices is amazing, and it is the best recording of the story. You won't regret this purchase.

   Nothing beats messing about in boats
The illustrations are wonderful in this edition. One of the greatest lines in English literature is " nothing beats messing about in boats" by Rat. I found this classic about the life of small animals on a river intriguing, and am an author of sea stories. This is a wonderful book for children and their parents.

   A nicelly done new edition of a wonderful classic.
One of my favorites from childhood is this. I bought it for my grandson. The illustrations of this edition are very nice, and the text seems to be the same.

   NOT the Wind in the Willows
I bought this book because I wanted to read it for my book club. The style of the book might have been the reason for the odd diction. I got to this paragraph and said to hold it difficult a minute. The Rat said it. He looped the painter through a ring in his landing- level, climbed up into his hole above, and after a short programming language came back to life. I found another copy of the book and found out that the programming language was not in the original book. The book club members agreed that this wasn't a real copy of the book. Do not buy it. You can get a free copy.

   Editing left out important part
The field mice carols are one of my favorite scenes in the book. Mary, Joseph, and the animals who were the first to cry Nowell were not mentioned in the field mice's song. The mice would be singing.

   The edition matters!
There are several editions of this book that are being reviewed. The hardcover edition that is illustrated by Robert Ingpen and has more than 200 pages in the product specifications is not being reduced. It is the full text and it is wonderful, from the paper quality to the binding to the formatting to the beautiful illustrations. I would recommend it to others. I believe there is a children's version on the market that also has illustrations by Ingpen, so just check your number of pages if you want the full text. Until " abridged" or " unabridged" is included in the book specifications on Amazon.

   The Folio Society edition
The society is named the Folio Society. This is supposed to be the most beautiful version of Wind in theWillows. I also have the Easton Press version. All three are great. I'm not sure which one is the best. I intend to update my post. I think a buyer is interested in hearing about the best. Robert Ingpen illustrated the version of the classic book. I don't like Ingpen's drawings. The cover of the book was not on the Folio copy I received. The only thing that matters is the book.
