This time-travel novel is the first book in which a writer's characters actually go into other books and interact with the characters therein. Compared to James Joyce's Finnegan's Wake as a book as "actually, unbelievably breaks new ground," Richard Roberts' The Wind & the Wizard has characters who venture into other books, affecting the "past" events and characters of those books so that they are changed by the new characters which Roberts has introduced. When the protagonist Bertie's monkey opens The Wind and the Willows, Bertie and Bongo suddenly find themselves in the English countryside before a car in which are seated Toad, Rat, Mole and Badger. How or why they came to be there is a mystery of space/time, but they must solve it in order to return to their own time and space. In so doing, Bertie learns his purpose as he next proceeds in the first volume into The Water-babies, Peter Pan, and Robin Hood. Forty illustrations by the artist Jo Gill.
