Synopsis

Brambly Hedge: Spring Story by Jill Barklem

Step into the exquisite, miniature world of the mice of Brambly Hedge in this beautiful new edition of the classic picture book. Wilfred woke early. It was his birthday. He had lots of lovely presents, but the best one was a surprise...Mr Apple had organised a secret celebration picnic and all the mice of Brambly Hedge were invited. There was so much to carry. Poor Wilfred got very tired as he lurched and bumped his way along the grassy track. What was it Mrs Apple had said was in his hamper? Knives? Sandwiches? They were certainly heavy! When they finally arrived, Wilfred was allowed to open up the hamper and there he found the best treat of all...Also look out for: Summer Story, Autumn Story and Winter Story!

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.
