I began collecting the original Classics Illustrated in 1953, when I was 7. Now I have a complete set of them (there are 168 titles in the series, but I have in excess of 220, which includes different covers, different interior art, and all of the Classic Comics issues). I also have all of the Marvel Classics, and all of the First Publishing Classics Illustrated. Needless to say, you can tell that I really enjoy these books! This new issue is remarkable, for it greatly expands the 60 pages from the original Classics (cut down to 48 in later years), so that there is much more space to tell a more complete story. "Wind in the Willows" is also one of my favorite books, and I was extremely impressed by the quality of the work, and the excellence of the artistry involved. The tale of Rat, Mole, Badger and J. Thaddeus Toad has never looked better! I intend to collect every one of these fine books!

The Wind in the Willows has spoiled me for any other of the Classics Illustrated. Michel Plessix has a rare talent in that his drawings are unusually evocative, creative, detailed, varied from panel to panel, full of humor and sweetness. He draws with love and a deep sensitivity to the natural world, from bugs to birds to trees to the moon on a dark night. Unusual perspectives await you, such as a view of the action from behind Mole's glasses. You want to pore over the exquisite details of Mole's dirty house, Toad's dungeon, Badger's attic and a hundred other details, in order not to miss anything. This book is a rare delight and one I read over and over, with so much pleasure that I feel rested and renewed afterward.

I have ordered other Classics Illustrateds, but there is no comparison. I hope for all our sakes that Plessix will publish again.

Lovely story and the illustration style matched the tale. I wish the book was 50% larger so that I could read some of the text. I believe you can get the individual chapters in a larger format, but then you'd end up with several books instead of 1 copy.

Not sure if it is the story that turned me off of this one or the format. Either way I didn't care for this one, however, my seven year old picked it up and quickly got into it. He seems to really enjoy it (he is a pretty advanced reader).

I love this story anyway, but the illustration is beautiful it adds exponentially. The tiny detail is stunning. The hare nearly human, the mole divine :)

One of the best illustrations i have seen in years...it takes us into a beautiful world. Bit sad about not able to find more books by michel plessix.
Most of us know the story The Wind in the Willows and the four main characters of Mole, Rat, Toad, and Badger. They are four friends whose differences in personality help enhance their friendship. There are several themes that you can notice in this book including trying to find your place in the world, man vs. society, social classes, technology, adventure, and friendship. Each of the four main characters has an adventure. Toad actually has adventures and misadventures.

What makes the Classics Illustrated Edition different and special? For starters, it is a graphic novel/comic book. Each page is eloquently drawn animation that puts picture to story. The level of detail is extraordinary too. The comic flows much like the story with alternating action and lull. That's sometimes hard to pull off in comic format, but Michel Plessix did it well. I could have read through this entire book in an hour but the pictures kept drawing me in. I wanted to study them and appreciate them for their beauty.

What are the drawbacks of this book? As this is an adaptation, this will not be an exact replication of the book. It's like a movie in a way. Some dialogue gets shortened. Chapters get omitted, i.e., Chapter 9 -Wayfarer's All is skipped over. However, I really appreciated that they encourage you to read the actual book at the end. While this is a great way for younger readers to get introduced to the book, it is no substitute for the original. As this was my first introduction to this series, I am very pleased with what I saw and read. I hope others in the series will be as impressive as this one.
