Book Excerpt: 
. . .There's bin another letter come to-day," Harold explained, "and the hamper got joggled about on the journey, and the presents worked down into the straw and all over the place. One of 'em turned up inside the cold duck. And that's why they weren't found at first. And Edward said, Thanks awfully!"

I did not see Martha again until we were all re-assembled at tea-time, when she seemed red-eyed and strangely silent, neither scolding nor finding fault with anything. Instead, she was very kind and thoughtful with jams and things, feverishly pressing unwonted delicacies on us, who wanted little pressing enough. Then suddenly, when I was busiest, she disappeared; and Charlotte whispered me presently that she had heard her go to her room and lock herself in. This struck me as a funny sort of proceeding.

Possibly only suitable for those who adore Edwardian childrens fiction, or who, like me, would read a press release for shoe polish if it were penned by Grahame.

The best of the lot: 'The Twenty-First of October.'

Bloody hell, this book is shiny! Some pieces are stronger than the other...I love "The Magic Ring", "A Saga of the Sea", "The Reluctant Dragon" and "A Departure".

childhood vignettes - some are awfully close to my own memories.

4 1/2 stars.

I would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys the Penrod books by Booth Tarkington. It has the same exuberant, joyful respect for the innocence and seriousness of bygone childhood imagination. And if the last story doesn't choke you up just a little, you have neither...more

I will have to admit that this book was a bit of a disappointment - okay the binding and edition are amazing but what is what you would expect from a Folio edition - however the actual book itself was a bit of a disappointment.

Ok this book is a classic although really it is second vol...more

These eight stories are just superb. Each one takes the reader right back to their childhood (assuming they aren't still there of course) in all its imaginative glory where anything is possible and even the walk home can hold untold opportunities from palaces with chocolate and soda rooms to drag...more

An excellent book to read to children, but also good to read as an adult. While this is a sequel to The Golden Age, you don't need to have read the first collection of stories to enjoy this one, which is what they both are - a collection of short stories from the point of view of an unnamed boy with...more

Fra den gyldne tidsalder for børnelitteratur kommer her en af genrens mestre og hans vidunderlige noveller. Kenneth Grahame skildrer på fantastisk og meget humoristisk vis livet set fra en victoriansk søskendefloks synsvinkel. Grahame har en fantastisk greb på hans børnekarakterer, og placerer de...more

The more I read Kenneth Grahame, the more I love his writing style. Like The Golden Age before it, this recounts scenes from childhood with great feeling and detail. Plus the wonderful pen and ink illustrations of Ernest Shepherd perfectly compliment the text. This collection includes an early ve...more

I read "A Wind in the Willows" last year, in my own late middle age, and was awed. It was like finding out there was this guy named Shakespeare who wrote plays—the work transcended a "star" rating.

This book doesn't. It's beautifully written, and wise, but a historical curio. It's odd...more
