Full disclosure, I haven't actually read the full version of this book...yet. Instead I read an iPad app version of the book: http://www.thewindinthewillowsapp.com/. The app offers a really great way to 'experience' the story, but is *very* heavily abridged....very! The good news is that the app experience piqued my interest enough to try reading the full text on my own some day soon. For now, I'll leave my rating blank since, but I'd give the iPad version 3.5 stars. The story was fun and engaging. I felt I really got to know the characters of Mole, Rat, Badger & Toad. The interactive bits were fun, but not distracting. I think the app could have included some more functionality - like the ability to go to a specific location, etc.
