Perfect gift for a little girl and her mother,
This review is from: A Year in Brambly Hedge (Hardcover)
Utterly charming books by an extremely talented artist. Jill Barklem inhabits her own vivid imaginative world, where tiny wood mice live. Her characters are beautifully drawn on the page, in exquisite detailed interiors and landscapes. It is a dream world for a little girl, where the pictures can be explored again and again for new details. The nostalgic kitchens full of carefully researched old fashioned pot and pans and ranges, and the woods and riverbanks outside with their careful botanic details, give rise to daydreams of a sweet old-fashioned life which will appeal to parents too.
