Kenneth Grahame - LIFE STORIES
 
 
5/10/1907     "Have You Heard About The Toad?"
On this day in 1907 Kenneth Grahame wrote the first of a series of letters to his son, Alastair, describing the adventures of Toad, Rat, Mole and Badger which eventually became The Wind in the Willows. Grahame had been inventing such bedtime stories for several years; putting them on paper at this point was occasioned by his being separated from his son on his seventh birthday.
