The Wind In The Willows Soaps Ton E

(Characters) To start off I will be describing the characters. The main character, Mr.Mole is a curious, adventurous, prideful, generous and kind animal.”But the Mole very full of lunch, and self satisfaction, and pride, and already quite at home in the boat (so he thought), and was getting a bit restless besides and presently he said, Ratty, Please, I want to row, now!,” Later on in Chapter 1 we discover Ratty, or Mr.Rat. Mr.Rat(Ratty) is, kind, caring, smart, brave, truthful, and is perhaps the most adventurous of them all.”The Rat danced up and down in the road, simply transported with passion. You villains, he shouted, shaking both fists, You scoundrels, you highwaymen, you-you-roadhogs!-I’ll have the law on you! I’ll report you! I’ll take you through all the Courts!” In Chapter 2 we the readers, meet Mr.Toad. Mr.Toad is wealthy, mischievous, simple-minded, kind, and determined. Personally, I believe Mr.Toad is the one who gets himself into trouble the most.”I wonder, he said to himself presently, If this sort of car starts easily?”(PG.79)”Let me see: he has been found guilty, on the clearest evidence, first of stealing a valuable motor car.” As you continue to read the book, we meet Mr.Badger. Mr.Badger is a recluse but he is kind, generous, wise, and he tells great stories.”Mr.Badger, he’s a kind-hearted gentleman, as everyone knows…” The characters in this story are as different as night and day, but somehow they all get along and become friends.

(Main Idea) The second analysis I will do is the main idea of this novel. The author, Kenneth Grahame, originally told this story to his son as a bedtime story. The main idea is about friendship and if you’re friend is in trouble you help them. The conflict in this novel is Toad and how he makes some really bad decisions that end up getting him in jail and how his friends struggle to help him. “You and me and our friend the Mole here-we’ll take Toad seriously in hand. We’ll stand no nonsense whatever. We’ll bring him back to reason, by force if need be. We’ll make him a sensible Toad.”(PG.45) I think this quote...
