Grahame started writing The Wind in the Willows to amuse his young son Alastair, but the novel quickly outlived its initial goal of amusement. Instead, its roots lay deep within Grahame’s childhood home of Cookham Dean in Berkshire with its terraced garden filled with copper beeches and ancient elms, an orchard, lily pond, raspberry canes and meadows thick with buttercups near to a broad ribbon of the Thames – perfect conditions for his imagination to flourish! Grahame’s unique animal characters combined with Ernest Shepard’s signature drawings gave The Wind in the Willows immediate success with readers alike!
Although Grahame had to assume the role of upstanding Victorian adult, he never lost sight of his belief that adults and children should remain distinct. Instead, he instilled magic into their world while crafting stories to educate and delight Alastair (who looked much like Toad).
