English Book Report
In this summer, I had read a book called “The Wind in The Willows”. This book is written by Kenneth Grahame. This book talks about the adventures of the Mole, Water Rat and the Badger. They also try to help their friend Mr. Toad who has a bad habit of reckless driving. His irresponsible living and extravagance lead to the loss of his home to the barbaric stouts and weasels. The four friends go to battle to regain Toad Hall. In the story Badger reprimands Toad’s foolishness. He corrects him into becoming more mature. Toad regrets what he has done before and promises his friends to reform. The story captures the meaning of true friendship and shows us a quartet of endearing characters, friends with real virtues contributing to each other’s moral growth. From the beginning, Mole has a sudden case of spring fever, gives up on his house-cleaning, and wanders in the fields and meadows. He finds himself by a river and meets the Water Rat, who invites Mole into his boat, something else he has never seen before. The another theme of the story is the emphasis on leisure. In our modern world in which people shift back and forth from work to working at making recreation, we forget the value of spontaneous play. In the Wind in the Willows, the river is where leisure is taken and enjoyed. So Mole finds the joy of carefree wandering, of picnicking, and playing .He enjoys it very much.
After reading this book, I think it is very interesting, this book talks about friendship and what I have learnt after I read this book is that we need to help others when they have difficulties and if they have some bad habits we also need to help them to correct the bad habits.
