When he was 5, his mother died from puerperal fever , and his father, who had a drinking problem, gave the care of his four children over to their grandmother, who lived in Cookham Dean in Berkshire.
There they lived in a spacious but dilapidated home, The Mount , in extensive grounds by the River Thames , and were introduced to the riverside and boating by their uncle, David Ingles, curate at Cookham Dean church. At Christmas the chimney of the house collapsed and the children moved to Fern Hill Cottage in Cranbourne, Berkshire. In , their father tried to overcome his drinking problem and took the children back to live with him in Argyll , Scotland, but after a year they returned to their grandmother's house in Cranbourne, where Kenneth lived until he entered St Edward's School, Oxford in Edwards the boys were free to explore the old city with its quaint shops, historic buildings, and cobbled streets, St Giles' Fair , the idyllic upper reaches of the River Thames , and the nearby countryside.
Grahame married Elspeth Thomson, the daughter of Robert William Thomson in , when he was 40; the next year they had their only child, a boy named Alastair whose nickname was "Mouse" born premature, blind in one eye, and plagued by health problems throughout his life.
In Grahame took early retirement from his job at the Bank of England and moved with his wife and son to an old farmhouse in Blewbury , where he used the bedtime stories he had told Alastair as a basis for the manuscript of The Wind in the Willows. With the arrival of spring and fine weather outside, the good-natured Mole loses patience with spring cleaning.
He has fled his underground home, emerging to take in the air and ends up at the river, which he has never seen before. Here he meets Rat a water vole , who at this time of year spends all his days in, on and close by the river. Rat takes Mole for a ride in his rowing boat. Toad is rich, jovial, friendly and kindhearted, but aimless and conceited; he regularly becomes obsessed with current fads, only to abandon them abruptly.
Having recently given up boating, Toad's current craze is his horse-drawn caravan. He persuades the reluctant Rat and willing Mole to join him on a trip. Toad soon tires of the realities of camp life, and sleeps in the following day to avoid chores. Later that day, a passing motorcar scares the horse, causing the caravan to overturn into a ditch. Rat threatens to have the law on the car driver, while Mole calms the horse, but Toad's craze for caravan travel is immediately replaced by an obsession with motorcars.
Nevertheless, on a snowy winter's day, while the seasonally somnolent Rat dozes, Mole impulsively goes to the Wild Wood to explore, hoping to meet Badger. He gets lost in the woods, sees many "evil faces" among the wood's less-welcoming denizens, succumbs to fright and panic and hides, trying to stay warm, among the sheltering roots of a tree. Rat wakes to find Mole gone. Guessing his mission from the direction of Mole's tracks and equipping himself with two pistols and a stout cudgel, Rat goes in search, finding him as snow begins to fall in earnest.

Badger, however, has some serious news which puts a damper on the celebration: a railway company is planning to build its line through the Riverbank, possibly destroying their homes.
Toad Hall is in need of some renovation work. Badger tells Toad about his ancestor, Inigo, a great architect. Inspired, Toad decides to take up architecture himself, and re-design Toad Hall. As usual, his efforts are somewhat misguided — he thinks the west wing has been put on the wrong side of the hall — and the weasels see yet another opportunity to take advantage of him. One morning after the storm, Rat return home with Mole after being invited to breakfast, only to discover that the river has disappeared from its channel.
Confused and distressed, he enlists the help of Mole, Badger and Toad, and they all set off to find out what happened. But Rat is not the only one to have lost something: on their search, he and Toad encounter a family of fieldmice whose caravan home has been flooded out. Toad is eventually persuaded to put them up at Toad Hall, but meanwhile the others may have found a clue to the disappearance of the river. Astride his trusty steed his motorcycle , 'Sir Toad' issues a challenge to joust, which the weasels accept.
Just miles away from the riverbank, Lord Rushton, a famous archaeologist , has uncovered an ancient barrow. Tired of the inconspicuous life of a country squire, Toad resolves to become "Lord Toad", a famous archaeologist. Toad's excavations meet a tunnel that the Chief Weasel and his assistant are digging. Lamenting his lack of finds, Toad is convinced by the weasels that he has found some ancient artifacts. Toad's hot air balloon finally arrives, and Badger thinks it will be a good way to survey the approach of the railway.
However, when Toad packs a huge hamper to take up with him, only Mole is left to help. The henchman weasel has fallen asleep in the basket, and as Mole tries to carry the hamper he trips over the rope and the balloon begins its ascent. Mole drives along in one of Toad's cars, following the balloon across the countryside. Up in the air, Toad takes photographs of the railway as the henchman tries not to be sick.
With too much weight, the balloon starts drifting downward towards a lake. With all the sandbags released, Toad and the henchman fight over who should jump out.
Toad pulls the wrong lever and the balloon crashes down into a tree. Examining the developed photographs, Badger is pleased with Toad's efforts. Mole even plays a joke on his friends by pretending that he has become obsessed with cars like Toad. Badger, Rat and Mole are preoccupied with the progress of the railway, which looks set to encroach on the Wild Wood and Riverbank. Toad almost collapses at the end of the long walk, and is rather cross when the others brand him overweight and unfit.
He orders an array of expensive exercise equipment, which turns out to be quite beyond his capabilities. As Toad cavorts into a cabinet in front of Rat and Mole, a stack of letters is revealed.
They refer to a consultation period for those affected by the railway, but Toad has failed to object in time.
Disguised as representatives of the railway company, the weasels talk Toad into selling Toad Hall to them. Toad plans to travel the world with the proceeds, until Badger gets wind of the deal and reads the fraudulent contract. It is autumn, and Rat, Mole and Badger are making preparations for winter, exchanging their home-made jams and preserves.
Toad's garden supplies most of the fruits and vegetables for his friends, but Toad himself prefers to buy his own winter provisions in a hamper from London, much to Badger's distaste. Determined to impress them all, Toad buys a tinning machine imported from the USA.
However, having refused to blanch the vegetables before putting them into the tins, the impression he makes when they are opened is not the sort he planned. With only a few days to Halloween, the riverbank youngsters are brimming with excitement.
Meanwhile, Toad is planning a party for the youngsters and is planning to make the best Halloween mask and costume. Billy Rabbit and the others venture into the Wild Wood to go play trick-or-treat, and they are scared by a monster. When the youngsters come running to his house for help, Toad determines to investigate After Billy and the others have to help him remove his mask which has become glued to his face. In the Wild Wood, his nerves get the better of him, and terror ensues when the monster reappears, hot on the tail of the weasels.
The following day Toad has taken to his bed in fright and Badger explains that the "monster" is, in fact, a steam traction engine, part of the construction effort in the Wild Wood. Toad feels silly and pretends to Badger he knew it was not a monster after all. It is nearing 5 November, Bonfire Night, and the riverbankers decide to celebrate as a welcome distraction from the construction of the railway in the Wild Wood.
Toad determines to have fireworks, and after trying his hand at firework-making without success, he heads to London to buy a luxury box.
