When the Rat discovers that Mole has set off for the Wild Wood but is trapped in a snowstorm, he must use all his wits and cunning to find his friend. For the Wild Wood is a place for voices, faces, and scurryings. Kenneth Grahame, today on The Classic Tales Podcast. Welcome to The Classic Tales Podcast. Thank you for listening. First, I’d like to offer a hearty thank you to those of you who have stepped up and become monthly supporters this past week. It’s honestly kind of a miracle that I can keep this ship afloat sometimes, and your monthly contributions really go a long way. I have over a hundred and sixty titles that I am in the process of editing, creating artwork and preparing for the website and other retail venues. It’s a daunting task for a one-man-band type of operation, but I really want the supporters to have access to all of the archived stories. And so thank you again for becoming a supporting member at www.thebestaudiobooks.com. There is no middleman skimming off the top, no online store taking 85%, no partner taking half. All proceeds go toward keeping the Classic Tales alive. Which is why your support is so valuable. The Wind in the Willows is a wonderful story, but the thing I particularly enjoy about it is the graceful language of Kenneth Grahame. Giving children an opportunity to hear the characters’ adventures while enjoying a backdrop of beautiful imagery is something that really gives this story enduring value. And now, The Wind in the Willows, Part 2of7, by Kenneth Grahame.
