Wilfred's Birthday is beautifully illustrated and wonderfully written, by Jane Barklem, sliding book with surprise at the end which really jumps out at you! She has made this really clever book which really impressed my little brother! Anyway back to the story, the plot is that it's Wilfred's birthday and the mice of Brambly Hedge give him a surprise celebration picnic. When the picnic hamper is opened, Wilfred finds the greatest surprise of all...! I would rate this book 7/ 10 and I would recommend it to young children who are aged between 6 and 9 although someone would have to read it to 6 and 7 year olds because the print is really small in the book I have got which I assume is the only version.
I had never seen a book with sliding pictures before! Each page has a tab you pull and another picture appears, I adore Brambly Hedge and so do the children! It's small and sweet for little hands and this one is a favourite tale!
