Book Description

Step into the exquisite miniature world of the mice of Brambly Hedge in this beautiful new edition of the classic picture book.

It was the middle of winter and very, very cold. The mice of Brambly Hedge forecasted snow.

And they were right. In the morning they awoke to find their doors and windows hidden behind deep drifts. There hadn't been snow like this for years. "There's enough for a Snow Ball!" cried the mice with glee, and set to work in the time-honoured way to make an Ice Hall for the festivities. The little mice watched wide-eyed as all the preparations were made.

Then at last everything was ready, and the Ball could begin…

    Review

    “…the most research-crammed fantasy ever set before small children…” Sunday Times Magazine

    “Spring Story, Summer Story, Autumn Story and Winter Story are beautiful tales…nostalgic Mums can enjoy them with their own kids.” The Sun (Natasha Harding)

    From the Back Cover

    Snow is falling and deep drifts cover the doors and windows of Brambly Hedge. The Toadflax children have never seen snow before and are so excited when they discover there is to be a Snow Ball. The little mice watch wide-eyed as all the preparations are made. At last everything is ready and the Ball can begin…

    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.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely picture book for children 13 Nov. 2001
    By A Customer
    Format:Hardcover
    One of the best things about this book, and the other Brambly Hedge titles, is the pictures. They appear on every page in full colour, and are beautiful in every detail. Children love them because there's always something new to spot and you don't grow tired of them. The story is great fun and the mice are lovely characters.

    3.0 out of 5 stars lovely illustrations, weak storyline 16 May 2009
    Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
    As with all Brambly Hedge books the illustrations are at least as if not more important than the story. Full marks for the illustrations; the ice grotto is beautiful. The storyline however is weak and the chldren weren't as engaged as with some of the others.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful childrens book 5 Nov. 2012
    Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
    All the Brambly Hedge books are little masterpieces of illustration. My children loved them all through childhood, and I am now buying them for the next generation, they are timeless. This is a particular favourite, the wintry illustrations of the Snow Ball and the amazingly detailed pictures of the store, and the cosy kitchen; beautifully done. A book for parents as well as children!
