THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS

There's far more to Kenneth Grahame's timeless children's novel than was suggested by Disney's popular "Mr. Toad" slapstick. Now from the producer of "When the Wind Blows" comes this lyrical, scrupulously faithful new cartoon adaptation bringing to life the whimsical adventures of the plodding Mole and his newfound friend Ratty, along the Great River and in the Wild Wood. Beneath their fun and frolic run profound themes about fellowship, the love for one's own home, and the spirit of Nature. Splendid animation artwork possesses the painstaking detail of fine storybook illustrations, Vanessa Redgrave narrates, and a first-rate cast of British character voices includes Monty Python's Michael Palin and cult comedian Rik Mayali, going full steam as literature's first and most famous manic-obsessive, Toad of Toad Hall. Recommended for children ages six and up.
