It was the very end of autumn, and Flax and Lily were busy making blankets for the voles in the High Hills. Mr. Apple had to deliver the blankets to them before the cold weather set in, and Wilfred Toadflax was eager to go along. He was convinced there was gold to be found in the hills beyond Brambly Hedge, and this was his chance to discover it.
Everything went according to plan until Wilfred scrambled up a rock face and couldn't get down. The mist began to rise, and soon Mr. Apple and Wilfred were engulfed in a thick white fog, unable to find their way home...

Jill Barklem spent five years on research before she started to write her stories about the mice of Brambly Hedge.
Her interest in natural history and traditional rural customs and crafts has spilled over into these chronicles of hedgerow life.
She lives with her husband and children near Epping Forest in England.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.
