From the Back Cover

When Wilfred Toadflax hears of Mr Apple’s expedition to the High Hills, he begs to go along. He is convinced there is gold to be found and this is his chance to discover it. Everything goes to plan until they are stranded on a rocky ledge. The mist begins to rise and soon they are engulfed in a thick white fog, unable to find their way home…

The mice of Brambly Hedge have many adventures but they always have time for fun too. All through the year, they mark the seasons with feasts and festivities and, whether it be a little mouse’s birthday, an eagerly awaited wedding or the first day of spring, the mice never miss an opportunity to meet and celebrate.

excellent books 2 Feb. 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
All of the Brambly Hedge books are wonderful. The stories are gentle and imaginative, and the illustrations are detailed and creative. I'd give all of them 5 stars except for one thing: the size of the books. On one hand their smaller size gives them a certain charm, but the first Brambly Hedge book I saw was one I took from the library in a "standard" picture book size, and you could just get lost in the illustrations. The smaller size of these books detracts from the loveliness of the pictures -- it's much more difficult to pick out the wonderful details, and the color is also a little less vibrant than the version I had seen, again making it hard to pick things out. What a disappointment, because the illustrations are half the charm of the books. If they had only made these books larger, they'd be perfect in every way.

Charming, gentle adventure story 6 Jan. 2000
By Deborah Rochefort - Published on
Format: Hardcover
As in all the Brambly Hedge stories, a sweet story combined with exquisite watercolor illustrations makes this a perfect read-aloud story for the very young -- although older children and adults are certainly not immune from its charm! Those who have an interest in the fiber arts will especially appreciate the plot, as spinning, weaving -and especially dyeing- play an intregal part in this adventure. The adventure itself is gently humorous and nicely evocative of the beauty and hardship of mountain terrains. My 3-yr-old daughter finds it a great inspiration, slinging on her backpack to pretend she is like the young mouse Wilfred Toadflax, intrepid explorer...

Lovely but recommend for over 4 years 14 Jun. 2009
By Sjb - Published on
This is a lovely book. The story is sweet with a twist, and the drawings are beautiful. Like another reviewer, I wish that the books were larger so that every detail of the illustrations could be seen well and lingered over. My grandson is 4 1/2 and I find that he is still a little too young for this book. He loved the illustrations and the story, but I did have to edit a bit, as it is rather wordy for his age, and his attention span isn't fabulous. He has an excellent vocabulary, but there were still some words that needed explaining, which broke the spell but which I considered a learning experience. The bottom line is that I read him to sleep with this book, and I enjoyed it, too.
