Reviews

Praise for The Willows and Beyond

“With its humor, tenderness, suspense, and happy ending...[Toad Triumphant is] a pleasant story and a good read.” —The Christian Science Monitor

“The old characters pop back to life as you begin reading.” —The New York Times

“Faithful to the original...Festive...A winsome winner.” —Chicago Tribune

The Willows in Winter transports us back to the familiar rivery world almost as authoritatively-and entertainingly-as a sequel by Grahame himself.” —The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

“Patrick Benson's crosshatched illustrations seem to have been lovingly guided by the hand of Ernest Shepard, whose 1931 drawings of The Wind in the Willows continue to transport young readers to meadow, riverbank, and wild wood.” —The Plain Dealer (Cleveland)
