The mice of Brambly Hedge made their first appearance in 1980 when the four seasonal stories were published. Ever since, readers have loved exploring the miniature world of the hedgerow and meeting the families that live there. The mice have many adventures but they always have time for fun too. Whether it's spring, summer, autumn or winter, there is always something to prepare for and of course the mice never miss an opportunity for a celebration.
'Brambly Hedge' is an international phenomenon with translations into fifteen languages and sales of over four and a half million. The mice have appeared on merchandise ranging from china to chocolate and are now on television too.
'The Four Seasons of Brambly Hedge' celebrates this enduring popularity by bringing together the first four stories, introduced by a unique conversation with their creator, Jill Barklem.
Jill Barklem has been drawn to the natural world ever since childhood. While training as an illustrator at St Martin’s School of Art, her long journeys to college gave her time to escape into the imaginary world of a colony of mice, later to be developed as the enchanting miniature world of Brambly Hedge. Jill lives in Epping, Essex.
