I also looked at some posters and other illustrations done for Wind in the Willows.

I found that a lot of covers and illustrations were very scenic and mostly of the characters boating on the river or having a picnic, so for my cover I am going to do something different that maybe hasn't been done before. While i was reading the book i made notes of each scene that stood out to me, Toad zooming in his motor car, the wild wood and the secret tunnel stood out to me as interesting scenes that would catch the attention of children looking at the cover.
