Return to the Willows

Jacqueline Kelly

This sequel to Kenneth Grahame’s classic The Wind in the Willows has humor and charm combined with the old-fashioned feel of the original tale. Mr. Toad is tired of adventures on boats and stealing motorcars, so he jumps aboard a hot-air balloon. When a crash results in a head injury, he recovers enough to lead an excursion to recover the aircraft. Toad’s nephew Humphrey is unsupervised at Toad Hall which leads to firecracker explosions, a kidnapping, and a war with weasels. An affectionate story for a new generation of Willows fans. Ages 8-10
