It is one of the most loved children's books of all time and is being presented by the Australian Shakespeare Company for the 8th year in a row. The lively story follows the adventures of Mole and his friends Toad, Ratty, Badger, and Weasel on the riverbanks of country England. The author Kenneth Grahame is said to have started the tale in bedtime stories and letters to his son. Director Marian Bragge said that the tale is still popular, 100 years after it was written in 1908. "It has beautiful characters who understand each other, love food and conversation and have strong opinions about the world. It is a great ageless adventure,'' she said. Ms. Bragge said it is fun for adults as well as children. "It has a great family appeal. People often come back with more of their family each year because it is a rollicking good time,'' she said. Wind in the Willows is being performed at the Royal Botanic Gardens from January 6-31. Tickets costs $25 each, phone Ticketek on 1300 795 012. We have 22 family passes to give away, valued at $85 each.
