16. "The Wind in the Willows" ~ Kenneth Grahame
Oh, the adventures of haughty, naughty Mr. Toad. That's all I could remember of this childhood favorite, which made the discovery of the other characters all the more interesting. The Mole, the Badger, the River Rat... all have stories, but it is strictly Mr. Toad with his bluster and pride that resonates.
Someone sent me a "what character would you be in" (enter book title here). If asked that again, I'd say that I'd want to be the Rat, though I'm probably more like the Badger.
As A.A. Milne said, this is household book because everyone in the household will like it.
4.0 out of 5.0 Milk Punches.
