The Wild Wood by Philip Mendoza is from the story The Wind in the Willows

Then suddenly, and as if it had been so all the time, every hole, far and near, and there were hundreds of them, seemed to possess its face, coming and going rapidly, all fixing on him glances of malice and hatred: all hard-eyed and evil and sharp.

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.
