The abandoned windmill stands watch over the rolling hills and meadows. Though worn down by time, it rests proudly and silently against the darkening sky. But the old mill isn't as empty as it seems!
As evening comes, the inhabitants of the mill emerge. the owl ruffles his feathers, and the bats stretch their wings in flight. Just outside, the frogs croak while a brisk wind stirs a spider's delicate web. When a fierce storm batters the mill and its great arms creak into motion, the animals have an eventful night ahead of them!
Strikingly illustrated, The Old Mill - based on walt Disney's animated short and retold by acclaimed children's writer Margaret Wise Brown-will delight young readers with the beauty, perils and mysteries of nature.
