About the Author
Kenneth Grahame (March 8, 1859-July 6, 1932) was a British writer most famous for The Wind in the Willows (1908), one of the classics of children's literature. Grahame's journey as a writer commenced in 1879 when he began crafting tales as an escape from the daily grind of his job at the Bank of England. Notably, The Wind in the Willows originated as a bedtime story for his cherished son, Alastair. Grahame's enchanting narrative expanded over time, evolving through heartfelt letters to his son. Since its publication, the classic children's book has remained a perennial favorite, never fading from the pages of literary history.
