Kenneth Grahame's classic children's novel is brought to musical life by American Costa Rican composer James Nathaniel Holland in his adaptation of "The Wind in the Willows" for theatrical dance production, orchestra, soloists and chorus. This fine work is waiting to be premiered. Perfect for children's concerts.

"A musically sophisticated, lyrical and sentimental adaptation of Grahame's novel, which emphasizes his poetic chapters of Rat and Mole, while maintaining the comedy of Mr. Toad. The genius of this adaptation is full of orchestral colors; a fine introduction to classical music and the orchestra for any young person or novice." --- The Nutley Globe
