From the Back Cover
It's Midwinter Eve and everyone in Brambly Hedge is busily preparing for the traditional midwinter celebrations. Primrose Woodmouse and Wilfred Toadflax are to recite a poem, so they go up to the attics to rehearse in peace and quiet. But when Primrose finds a small key in an old wooden dresser, all thoughts of rehearsing are put aside…
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 and opportunity to meet and celebrate.See all Product description

I would spend hours upon hours reading the books, and then i would re-enact them alone, finding whatever props i could in the small Paris rooftop flat i grew up in, just so i could make-believe the cosy, mellow, sweetly sensual, magical, and welcoming world of Brambly Hedge.
I dreamed of candied violets, spring flowers, sparkling ice halls, and lush summer cakes, whilst below me, the loud busy city rushed past.
My father helped me draw and write up my own Brambly Hedge story, which i then sent to Jill Barklem...and months later she wrote back, telling me how she had read my story to her children !!
Secret Staircase was the book i loved re-enacting the most. Once upon a time, i knew the entire story by heart!
