The Wind in the Willows

Re-reading this with the kids as our bedtime reading book, and I'd forgotten how funny and beautiful it is. We chose it because it plays a role in All the Wrong Questions, a series we just finished (and liked a lot). But Trudy especially cracked up at Toad, over and over. Good job Kenneth Grahame!

Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.

Quoted on July 24, 2020

O Mole! the beauty of it! The merry bubble and joy, the thin, clear, happy call of the distant piping! Such music I never dreamed of, and the call in it is stronger even than the music is sweet! Row on, Mole, row! For the music and the call must be for us.
