Description

Far from fading with time, Kenneth Grahame’s classic tale of fantasy has attracted a growing audience in each generation. Rat, Mole, Badger and the preposterous Mr Toad (with his ‘Poop-poop-poop’ road-hogging new motor-car), have brought delight to many through the years with their odd adventures on and by the river, and at the imposing residence of Toad Hall.

Grahame’s book was later dramatised by A. A. Milne, and became a perennial Christmas favourite, as Toad of Toad Hall. It continues to enchant and, above all perhaps, inspire great affection.

About our Collector’s Editions: These new compact hardbacks will be cloth-bound, with matching coloured end papers, embossed gold and coloured blocking to enhance their beautiful, bespoke cover illustrations.

⭐ The Wind InThe Willows has always been a very well-loved story of mine. I was so excited when I found it in such a cute presentation. When I received my order, it was not like the picture AT ALL. It came as a loved brown book. Be mindful that it does not come as pictured. I was disappointed with the lack of transparency of what you are getting. I love the book, however, I like to know what I’m getting.

⭐ Well, I can’t really review the story without giving away details; I will, however, say that it is still an enjoyable read even as an adult. I loved this book as a kid and bought this to have around for my son and I’m glad I did. this is a nice cloth bound collector’s edition book, not too big, not too small, just what you’d want for the collection. Be aware though that the illustrations in this book were minimal (only on the opening page of each chapter) so if your kiddo wants more illustrations you may want to seek out a different edition. Hope this helps!

⭐ Beautiful collector’s edition of one of my favorite books.

⭐ Wonderful illustrated edition

⭐ Beautiful Quality

⭐ I really like the canvas style of this collection! Will definitely be buying more to complete the set!

⭐ I loved the art! Wish there was more art in it!

⭐ A favourite book. This is a replacement for an old paperback and the presentation , the cover binding is beautiful but unfortunately, it lacked many of the original illustrations which added to the atmosphere of the lovely descriptive writing. Disappointing with those omissions.

⭐ I’m disappointed with the transportation for which I paid more than 50£ for the books to arrive like they’re old copies. It’s really sad because I was looking forward to this collection.

⭐ Beautiful book. Lovely hardback. It’s a great story if you want the original. I bought it to read to my class of 6 years olds and it wasn’t suitable for this age group

Wuthering Heights (Wordsworth Classics) by Emily Bronte (Epub)

Introduction and Notes by John S. Whitley, University of Sussex. Wuthering Heights is a wild, passionate story of the intense and almost demonic love between Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff, a foundling adopted by Catherine's father. After Mr Earnshaw's death, Heathcliff is bullied and humiliated by Catherine's brother Hindley and wrongly believing that his love for Catherine is not reciprocated, leaves Wuthering Heights, only to return years later as a wealthy and polished man. He proceeds to exact a terrible revenge for his former miseries. The action of the story is chaotic and unremittingly violent, but the accomplished handling of a complex structure, the evocative descriptions of the lonely moorland setting and the poetic grandeur of vision combine to make this unique novel a masterpiece of English literature.

The Turn of the Screw by Henry James (Epub)

The Turn of the Screw is a novella (short novel) written by Henry James. Originally published in 1898, it is ostensibly a ghost story. Due to its ambiguous content, it became a favorite text of academics who subscribe to New Criticism. The novella has had differing interpretations, often mutually exclusive. Many critics have tried to determine the exact nature of the evil hinted at by the story. An unnamed narrator listens to a male friend reading a manuscript written by a former governess whom the friend claims to have known and who is now dead. The manuscript tells the story of how the young governess is hired by a man who has become responsible for his young nephew and niece after the death of their parents. He lives mainly in London and is not interested in raising the children himself. The boy, Miles, is attending a boarding school, while his younger sister, Flora, is living at a country estate in Essex. She is currently being cared for by the housekeeper, Mrs. Grose. The governess's new employer, the uncle of Miles and Flora, gives her full charge of the children and explicitly states that she is not to bother him with communications of any sort. The governess travels to her new employer's country house and begins her duties. Miles soon returns from school for the summer just after a letter arrives from the headmaster stating that he has been expelled. Miles never speaks of the matter, and the governess is hesitant to raise the issue. She fears that there is some horrid secret behind the expulsion, but is too charmed by the adorable young boy to want to press the issue. Soon thereafter, the governess begins to see around the grounds of the estate the figures of a man and woman whom she does not recognize. These figures come and go at will without ever being seen or challenged by other members of the household, and they seem to the governess to be supernatural. She learns from Mrs. Grose that her predecessor, Miss Jessel, and another employee, Peter Quint, had had a sexual relationship with each other and had both died. Prior to their deaths, they spent much of their time with Flora and Miles, and this fact has grim significance for the governess when she becomes convinced that the two children are secretly aware of the presence of the ghosts. Later, Flora leaves the house while Miles plays music for the governess. They notice Flora's absence and go to look for her. The governess and Mrs. Grose find her in a clearing in the wood, and the governess is convinced that she has been talking to Miss Jessel. When she finally confronts Flora, Flora denies seeing Miss Jessel, and demands never to see the governess again. Mrs. Grose takes Flora away to her uncle, leaving the governess with Miles. That night, they are finally talking of Miles' expulsion when the ghost of Quint appears to the governess at the window. The governess shields Miles, who attempts to see the ghost. The governess tells him that he is no longer controlled by the ghost, and then finds that Miles has died in her arms.
