These joyful stories are a delight. The Times
Love, sacrifice and endurance are foregrounded in these timeless-feeling tales, delivered in language as sharp and sweet as the ripe fruit of the title. An instant classic, subtly enriched by Richard Collingridge's delicate, shadowy illustrations. Metro
Jamila Gavin is one of our most consistently good writers of fiction for children young and old [...] the feel is timeless, but the stories are all original, touched with the magic of Gavin's vibrant and varied imagination. Independent on Sunday
Gavin's six stories are spooky, engaging and refreshing in their originality. Complemented by Richard Collingridge's atmospheric illustrations, this lovely book deserves to become a classic. -- Marilyn Brocklehurst Bookseller
Absolutely gorgeous ... Perfect for sharing and for reading alone, I can't recommend Blackberry Blue and Other Fairy Tales highly enough. The Bookbag
