Review:

"These joyful stories are a delight." (The Times)

"Love, sacrifice and endurance are foregrounded in these timeless-feeling tales, delivered in language as sharp and sweet as the ripe fruit of the title. An instant classic, subtly enriched by Richard Collingridge's delicate, shadowy illustrations." (Metro)

"Jamila Gavin is one of our most consistently good writers of fiction for children young and old [...] the feel is timeless, but the stories are all original, touched with the magic of Gavin’s vibrant and varied imagination." (Independent on Sunday)

"Gavin’s six stories are spooky, engaging and refreshing in their originality. Complemented by Richard Collingridge’s atmospheric illustrations, this lovely book deserves to become a classic." (Marilyn Brocklehurst Bookseller)

"Absolutely gorgeous . . . Perfect for sharing and for reading alone, I can't recommend Blackberry Blue and Other Fairy Tales highly enough." (The Bookbag)

"All the traditional elements of fairy tales are here, making this storytelling at its best." (Vanessa Lewis Bookseller)

"Beautifully told, magical, dark and mysterious in the best fairytale tradition . . . these are exactly the stories a 21st century classroom needs. The stories will be a joy to read aloud but the beautiful illustrations by the talented Richard Collingridge are crying out to be appreciated by an individual reader tucked away in a classroom book corner." (ReadingZone)

"The collection of stories were fantastic. There are six altogether and I would have problems picking out my favourite to be honest, I loved them all." (readaraptor.co.uk)

"The quality of the stories is second to none and adults will enjoy reading them with their children just as much as the kids themselves. A real winner, and should be up for several literary prizes" (Books Monthly)

"A stunning collection of mystical fairy tales, Blackberry Blue is packed with picturesque moments that will bewitch readers" (Booktrust)
