Review

"...the most researched-crammed fantasy ever set before small children..." Sunday Times Magazine

About the Author

Jill Barklem was born in Epping and led a quiet childhood enjoying being close to nature. On leaving school, she 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.

I haven't received this yet, but I have a couple of the books, one out of this set, and couldn't figure out how to get the other three without breaking my budget, until I discovered this set at a miraculously reasonable price. My mom loved having something to give me for Christmas after all, and I will love finally having the rest of the 'seasons'.

The stories are enchanting as well as containing the cute little pictures, but beware of the sellers, especially by super book deals, do a good review search to get someone decent to help you.
I ordered the full version of these stories as I am sure we will get lots of use out of these stories, perfect now for Easter.

I'd give this three and a half stars - five stars for the illustrations and descriptive language, two stars for the plot. Too many characters were introduced and none were developed enough if at all. The plot was pretty dull, which is unfortunate since the language and illustrations were so beautiful. The vocabulary was challenging for a young audience, for whom the book seems to be intended, however the plot is so boring that the difficult vocabulary ends up working against it rather than for it. I suspect that the main reason that children like the Brambly Hedge books is for the illustrations, which is probably why they never gained the popularity of similar books of more engaging content, such as the Winnie the Pooh series, Beatrix Potter books, or The Wind in the Willows.

We have this series on loan from our local library. My 4 1/2 year old daughter loves Angelina Ballerina books so I figured she might enjoy this series as well. She adores them and has us read them to her repeatedly and daily. The prose is so lovely and provides such a rich vocabulary for ages 4-7. The size of the books also make them great to travel with. Santa will need to bring her a set of her own Brambly Hedge this year!

Beautiful illustrations. The boxed set is gorgeous! We keep them in easy reach and read them over and over no matter the season. If you like warm, cozy, sweet stories, you will be in for a treat! My daughter is 8 and adores them!!

She loves the detailed illustrations as do I.
I can recommend this box set for a perfect present for any age - I think I love reading them just as much as my niece
