41. The Wind In The Willows by Kenneth Grahame Egmont, £5.99
It might be 100 years old, but this novel about Ratty, Mole, Badger, Toad and the other animals of the riverbank is an evocation of rural England that still captures the imagination. Adapted again and again as an animation, film, stage play and television series, Kenneth Grahame’s story, which afforded the wildlife human characteristics, brings themes of friendship and morality to children’s books.
