Peters, Stephanie True. The Wind In The Willows. Capstone Publishers 2017 72p $20.49 ISBN 978-1-4965-3562-7 elem Series: Graphic Revolve. Graphic novel VG
This is a well-done graphic-novel adaptation of the classic Kenneth Grahame tale of Mole, Rat, Badger, and Mr. Toad. Mole is tired of spring cleaning and decides to enjoy spring in all its glory instead. He meets up with Rat, Badger, and Mr. Toad, and their adventures proceed handily. Their further adventures are presented through the use of brightly colored illustrations by artist Fernando Cano and text adaptations by Stephanie Peters. The text is simplified enough to make it accessible to younger or reluctant readers but loses little of the story line. It will be a great way to introduce this time-honored fairy tale to a new generation.
Graphic Resolve, this well-done new series from Capstone Books, presents the children’s classics The Wind in the Willows, Alice in Wonderland, The Jungle Book, Pinocchio, and The Wizard of Oz in graphic-novel format.
Summary: This is a well-done graphic-novel adaptation of the classic Kenneth Grahame tale of Mole, Rat, Badger, and Mr. Toad.
