He wrote stories and essays to avoid becoming too bored at work and published The Wind in the Willows, his best - known work, in retirement.  Grahame's son Alastair committed suicide in 1920, and thereafter Grahame lived a quiet, private life, but sequels to his children's masterpiece were written by others.
