Review:

The mice of Brambly Hedge first made an appearance in 1980 with the publication of four stories that introduced a charmingly nostalgic hedgerow world where anything could happen, but all would be well in the end.

A Visit to Brambly Hedge is published to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Jill Barklem's characters, and features brand new artwork to mark the occasion.

As the reader explores behind the scenes, trying out recipes and games that the mice enjoy, investigating hedge and plant life, learning what is safe to eat from the wild and what should be avoided, Barklem's fans gradually discover more about the enviably gentle world of the Brambly Hedge folk.

A Visit to Brambly Hedge is a pretty gift book that will delight young readers, but will appeal to lovers of old-fashioned artwork and ideals no matter what their age. (Ages 5 to 8) --Sally Hartman
