The Wind in the Willows - Kenneth Grahame

Far from fading with time, Kenneth Grahame's classic tale of fantasy has attracted a growing audience in each generation. 

This book is a modern classic and a popular study text for schools all over the world. When a group of boys are isolated on a desert island, the society they create descends into ruthless behaviour.

Rat, Mole, Badger and the preposterous Mr Toad (with his 'Poop-poop-poop' road-hogging new motor car), have brought delight to many through the years with their odd adventures on and by the river, and at the imposing residence of Toad Hall.

Golding uses dramatic and descriptive language, almost like poetry, that makes you feel as though you’re in the scenes yourself.

Different Types of Mobile Phone Cases

Nowadays, we can easily say that the mobile phones are one of the most significant investments that we have in our possession.  In order to protect this investment, we need to have a certain familiarity with the different mobile phone cases that are offered in the market.  These mobile phone accessories are offered in different design and provide a different level of protection.  Choosing what type of case is ideal for you is a matter of lifestyle choice.  You should also ensure that it will not hamper the usability of your smartphones.

The Different Types of Mobile Phone Cases

There are cases for mobile phones that are purely designed for aesthetic purpose and not so much on the protection.  These types of casing are good for customising and also a perfect gift for someone.  But for the mobile phone cases that provides protection either from shock, dirt or moisture, the level of protection it provides should suit your lifestyle.  For instance, if you are in a place exposed to a high level of moist, then you need to find a case that has a high resistance against water.

Phone Socks

Phone socks are the most basic kind of mobile phone cases.  These are usually manufactured using various materials and different sizes.  There were phone socks that are designed for a particular type of phone, and there are mobile phone accessories that are designed to accommodate different phone models and brand.  They are lightweight and offer the least amount of protection for your mobile phones.  It can also increase the possibility of acquiring damage if the mobile phone is not perfectly fit on the phone socks.

Sleeves and Pouches

Sleeves and pouches will fit better compared to the phone socks.  The soft are created using light materials, and the pouches and sleeves are commonly crafted using leather such as the things sold at Mobile Pro.  It only protects your phone while it is inside and it is slightly expensive compared to the phone socks.

Mobile Phone Cases and Skins

Every new mobile phone comes with mobile phone cases which you can easily replace when it is damaged.  The protection that it offers depends upon the design of the case.  When it comes to the skin, it may not provide any added protection.  But there are phone casings that have a good padding that can protect your phone against shocks.


Clips are mobile phone accessories designed for suspending your phone.  It will not provide you with added style and protection.  Clips will allow you to attach the mobile phones in the belt or the interior of the car or the handle of the motorcycle or bike.

Whatever types of mobile phone cases you are looking for; has something in store for you.  The casing you will choose will highly depend on the level of protection it provides.
