Messing About In Boats by Philip Mendoza is from the story The Wind in the Willows

'Believe me, my young friend, there is NOTHING - absolute nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats'.

The Wind in the Willows has been illustrated by numerous artists. This is one of the many illustrations Philip Mendoza produced for a serialisation of the story in the magazine "Treasure" during 1974-5. A selection of the artwork was then pulled together for a book. This image appeared in The wind in the willows by Kenneth Grahame, Barbara Sleigh, Philip Mendoza.
