About the Book

Everything jumped and pulsed in response to the giant's movement since it was one of the earliest awakenings of the year. The powerful wind was screaming and chasing the lord of the dawn outside. Our pond had a belt of rhododendrons growing next to it, and everything around it was in foul bloom. Edward and Harold were enjoying the opportunity to return to the sheaves from the rick yard in empty wagons. It was the closest we inland urchins could get to a sailing route.
On these dusty quarter decks, exciting scenarios like Sir Richard Grenville on the Revenge, the smoke-draped Battle of the Nile, and the Death of Nelson had all been acted out in turn. Modern aunts avoided it, preferring to handle their finances and correspondence in other places.
On this, the leading lady decided to halt and take the time to inspect how her new dressing robe fit. Edward's dramatic impulses were overwhelmed by this, so he entered the stage with flourishes appropriate for the situation. Following a battle along legal lines, Selina was fatally stabbed slowly and with unction, and her corpse was carried from the room. The professor intended to reject Olympians for adding two and two. We took care to keep our aptitude for a straightforward syllogism a secret.

About Author

Kenneth Grahame

Scottish-born Edinburgh native Kenneth Grahame was a British author who lived from 8 March 1859 to 6 July 1932. His most well-known works were The Reluctant Dragon and The Wind in the Willows (1908), both classics of children's literature. His mother died from scarlet fever when he was five years old, and his father was a sheriff's replacement. It is believed that the author was influenced by the setting of The Wind in the Willows. In 1879, Grahame received a job assignment at the Bank of England. He advanced through the ranks until taking a medical retirement as its Secretary in 1908. Three bullets were fired at Grahame, but none of them hit him. He was driven into retirement, reportedly for health reasons. In 1899, Grahame wed Elspeth Thomson, a woman who was Robert William Thomson's daughter. Alastair (also known as "Mouse"), the couple's only child, was born blind in one eye and had other medical issues. In 1920, Grahame's son took his own life on a railway line. When author Kenneth Grahame died in 1932, he left behind a legacy that would forever make childhood and literature more blessed. At Holywell Cemetery in Oxford, he was buried next to his son Alastair in the same cemetery as his wife Elspeth.
