Complete Works of Kenneth Grahame

 

Almost everyone knows The Wind in the Willows, Kenneth Grahame's classic masterpiece. But Grahame also wrote a variety of other short stories, essays, poems and introductions to other authors' books which, although largely forgotten today, were well known in his day. Indeed, he was already famous for writing The Golden Age and Dream Days, his two collections of short stories about a family of orphaned children, long before The Wind in the Willows was first published in 1908.

For many years his lesser-known works have been difficult to obtain and, for this reason, they have languished in undeserved obscurity.  This is a great loss because Grahame wrote in a rich, entertaining style and, in many cases, with a great range of wit and humour. Although he had a relatively small output of published works - they all fit into a single volume - the versatility he shows within those works is particularly impressive.

For the first time ever, all Grahame's published writings, with the exception of his private letters, have been collected by a team of members of the Kenneth Grahame Society and published together in a single volume. It is the Society’s hope that the reader will enjoy reading many of the gems in this literary treasure trove and will appreciate Grahame's literary genius all the more.

The Wind in the Willows Short Stories

 

In 2008, the Kenneth Grahame Society organised a short-story competition to encourage writers to create sequels to Kenneth Grahame’s classic novel, The Wind in the Willows.

There were nearly one hundred entries, from which this collection of thirteen stories was selected for publication. The stories include prequels and counter texts, as well as sequels to The Wind in the Willows.

Badger, Toad, Water Rat, Mole and a horde of weasels, stoats and other characters come to life again in this collection of tales, reopening a door to Kenneth Grahame’s wonderful world of the river bank and the Wild Wood.
