Editorial Reviews

Review

"...the most researched-crammed fantasy ever set before small children..." Sunday Times Magazine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Jill Barklem was born in Epping and studied illustration at St Martin's in London. The inspiration for Brambly Hedge appeared during Jill's daily train journey between Epping and London: shutting herself off from the outside world, she became obsessed with the way of life of a band of hedgerow mice, later to be developed as the world of Brambly Hedge. Jill still lives in Epping, Essex. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This is an adorable story with precious pictures. It relates the adventures of a young mouse, Wilfred, who is celebrating his birthday. His fellow mice plan a pleasant surprise for him, but he'll have to work to get it. I recieved this book as a two-year old, and I am so glad my mother preserved it for me. This is a great book for bedtime, or any time. Young children and adults alike will enjoy the delicate pictures and accompanying text. You will truly enjoy this book!

It's a lovely story of the cute woodmice that live in the English countryside. But what really got me to purchase this book, and the other Brambly Hedge books and fine china pieces produced by Royal Doulton is the illustration. Every picture is so cute!

The spring story is about the woodmice community planning a surprise birthday party for Wilfred, an energetic boy woodmouse. This book would make a good birthday gift for young child.

Format: Hardcover
While the story here isn't anything overly amazing (a surprise birthday party) I simply love all the illustrations!

We get to see how the different creatures/families in Brambly Hedge prepare for the birthday (and they are all so cute and sweet and thoughtful) and I loved pouring over all the various houses and rooms and how they fit into the different shaped trees, etc. So beautiful and so enchanting for those of us who love "little things fitting into the world".

The story is sweet, too (I like that everyone in the town works together), but it's definitely the illustrations that won me over!

Instead of focusing on their birthday month etc., I have the cup and plate and we have tea parties, and talk about the 'season' in which my grandchildren (now great grandchildren) are born.
