Over de Auteur

Kenneth Grahame was born in Edinburgh on March 3, 1859. When he was five years old, his mother died of scarlet fever and he nearly died himself, of the same disease. His father became an alcoholic and sent the children to Berkshire to live with relatives. They were later reunited with their father, toon meer but after a failed year, the children never heard from him again. Sometime later, one of his brothers died at the age of fifteen. He attended St. Edward's School as a child and intended to go on to Oxford University, but his relatives wanted him to go into banking. He worked in his uncle's office, in Westminster, for two years then went to work at the Bank of England as a clerk in 1879. He spent nearly thirty years there and became the Secretary of the Bank at the age of thirty-nine. He retired from the bank right before The Wind in the Willows was published in 1908. He wrote essays on topics that included smoking, walking and idleness. Many of the essays were published as the book Pagan Papers (1893) and the five orphan characters featured in the papers were developed into the books The Golden Age (1895) and Dream Days (1898). The Wind in the Willows (1908) was based on bedtime stories and letters to his son and it is where the characters Rat, Badger, Mole and Toad were created. In 1930, Milne's stage version was brought to another audience in Toad of Toad Hall. Grahame died on July 6, 1932. (Bowker Author Biography) toon minder

Besprekingen

De Engelse klassieker uit 1908. Het boek bevat de spannende avonturen van Mol, Das, Pad en Rat. Vier vrienden, gentlemen, die elkaar niet moraliserend veroordelen, maar onvoorwaardelijk steunen en elkaar eventueel vriendelijk en correct bijsturen. Het verhaal ontstond uit bedverhaaltjes en brieven van de auteur aan zijn zoontje. De man was eigenlijk een buitenmens en luisterde graag naar het zingen van 'de wind in de wilgen'. De schrijfstijl is verhalend met gebruikmaking van de verleden tijdsvorm en dialogen. De humor in de conversaties bevat een flinke knipoog naar volwassenen.… (meer)

In "De wind in de wilgen" leven vier dieren: De Mol, de Rat, de Das en de Pad in het bos aan de rivier. De avonturen die ze meemaken staan centraal in dit boek.
Het is een leuk kinderboek met mooie illustraties.
