Synopsis

Winter 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. It was the middle of winter and very, very cold.

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.
