The Wind in the Willows - Kenneth Grahame, Gillian Avery
This is one of my favorite children's books ever. I absolutely love Toad of Toad Hall. Who wouldn't, right? He's the mischievous little boy who gets into everything, causes utter chaos, sincerely regrets it (for about 10 minutes), forgets all about it, and goes off to wreck more havoc. Anybody who hasn't read this one is missing out on an excellent classic tale. Young or old, this has something for every reader.
