Evertype is pleased to announce the publication of Kenneth Grahame's The Wind in the Willows, translated into Cornish by Nicholas Williams and illustrated by Ernest H. Shepard. 

"The Wind in the Willows" is a children's classic, whose main characters are four anthropomorphised animals, a water rat, a mole, a badger and a toad. The novel is remarkable for its mixture of mysticism, adventure, morality and camaraderie and for the acute awareness shown in it of the differing social classes of Edwardian England. The author, Kenneth Grahame, stayed in the Greenbank Hotel, Falmouth, for a period in 1907 and it was there that he began to write his novel in the form of letters to his son, Alistair. Indeed some of the characteristics of Toad in the novel may have been based on Alistair himself, whose troubled life ended before his twentieth birthday. Most of all, however, "The Wind in the Willows" evokes the natural environment of the Thames Valley at the beginning of the last century and it has been a favourite of children since it was first published in 1908.

Price £11.95. Available from Amazon.co.uk. To learn more, see http://evertype.com/books/willows-kw.html
