Editorial Reviews

Review

"...the most research-crammed fantasy ever set before small children..." Sunday Times Magazine "Spring Story, Summer Story, Autumn Story and Winter Story are beautiful tales...nostalgic Mums can enjoy them with their own kids." The Sun (Natasha Harding) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Her interest in natural history and traditional rural customs and crafts has spilled over into these chronicles of hedgerow life.

I am so excited that the Brambley Hedge stories have come back into print. All of Jill Barklem's books are precious, and this one is no exception. In the Winter Story, The mice of Brambley Hedge are very excited. It has snowed, the greatest snow in years. The mice prepare a magnificent Snow Ball, a huge feast and dance in a grand Ice Hall. The pictures are marvelous and fascinating, the story precious. This book is recommended to all!

These books by Jill Barklem are priceless, the illustrations are exquisite. Also have The Summer Story, The Autumn Story and Poppy's Babies. Do not know of any child that would not love these books, but I am in my eighties and making up for a childhood deprived of books. I can look at them many many times and delight in the wonder of these little mice families. Am sure that children would be delighted to receive them as gifts and treasure them forever.

This is a joyful little story about a Winter storm arriving at Brambley Hedge. The mice make the best of it, with a huge Winter Ball. It is very festive, with the intense, detailed artwork and all the interesting characters. Although the publishers should have printed it larger to enable the viewers examination, it still keeps the interest of a 3-4 year old and older...even adults:)

I have all of Jill Barklem's books and Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall are my utmost favorite. These books are outstandingly beautiful and knowing that I can at least have my favorite 4 with me on my Kindle on my ipad, made me very, very happy! Her books just make you all warm and cuddly inside and really bring out the wonder of a child out from inside of you. I was also delighted to see that the color and print was the same as the original paper books which made the Kindle books just as great, and there were no middle seams to contend with.
I am a woman, 65 years young, and am very grateful for Jill Barklem's wonderful imagination and her lovely books, Amazon, and Kindle for allowing me to continue to forever enjoy the wonder of the lives, homes, families and adventures of these tiny mice creatures! Forever Young and in Love and Light, JoAnna Y
Ps. Oh, and one more thing, I would highly recommend these books and the Kindle edition...
