The Wind in the Willows focuses on four anthropomorphized animals in a pastoral village meant to represent Edwardian England. These four animals are Mole or “Moly,” an altruistic homebody; Rat or “Ratty,” a cultured and adventurous poet; Mr. Toad or “Toady,” a wealthy heir who is kind but often falls prey to his arrogant and impulsive nature; and Mr. Badger, a wise old friend of Toad’s father. Exploring themes of friendship, honesty, and the importance of home and neighbours, The Wind in the Willows is one of the most enduring classics of British children’s literature.
