A lovely adaptation of Kenneth Grahame's famous novel The Wind in the Willows aimed at pre-school children and published in the long-running Playhour comic. This story was serialised in two-page episodes and ran for several weeks from late 1955 to the early months of 1956. Featuring Mole, Ratty, Mr Toad, Badger.
The Wind in the Willows is a children's novel by Kenneth Grahame, first published in 1908. Alternately slow moving and fast paced, it focuses on four anthropomorphised animals in a pastoral version of England. The novel is notable for its mixture of mysticism, adventure, morality and camaraderie, and for its evocation of Nature in the Thames valley.
Ratty's friend Otter gets into Toad Hall disguised as a chimney sweep.
