About the Author:

Jill Barklem was born in Epping. On leaving school, she studied illustration at St Martin's in London. The inspiration for Brambly Hedge appeared during her daily train journey to and from 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.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-4 Absolutely stunning watercolor illustrations, full of rich details, perfectly capture the tone of this charming story about the field mice who reside in Brambly Hedge. The voles in the High Hills are in desperate need of new blankets before the cold weather arrives, and young mouse Wilfred decides to accompany Mr. Apple on his good-will mission to deliver the mouse-made quilts. Wilfred welcomes the opportunity to explore unknown territory and dreams of discovering gold on his journey. Mr. Apple and Wilfred bravely face the obstacles they encounter, and lucky Wilfred returns home with a surprise treasure after all. Young children will enjoy hearing of Wilfred's adventures (older children can handle the clearly written text themselves), and will find much to delight the eye in the old-fashioned and cheerful pictures.Bonnie R.
