In Britain, Stephen Fry narrates them and is arguably ever better.


growing up, i had a taped version of the Wind in the Willows. I listened to it for years, when ever we were ill, we got the tapes. As I got older, I could follow along with the book. I listened to those tapes till I was a teenager. I wish I knew who read them, because I can hear the voice whenever I pick the books up now, every "plop"; "canary yellow"; "buttered toast". The sounds are as much a part of my experience of the book as the words.
