9780006645894: The Secret Staircase (Brambly Hedge)

Step into the exquisite, miniature world of the mice of Brambly Hedge in this beautiful new edition of the classic picture book. It is Midwinter's Eve and the mice of Brambly Hedge are very busy. This evening, after dark, they will all be gathering round a blazing fire for the traditional midwinter celebrations. A grand entertainment is planned and Primrose and Wilfred have chosen to recite a poem. They go up to the attics to rehearse in pace and quiet but there are so many things to look at and places to explore, it is hard to concentrate. And when they stumble upon a dusty staircase, all thoughts of practising are put aside...

About the Author:

Jill Barklem was born in Epping. On leaving school, she studied illustration at St Martin's in London. The inspiration for Brambly Hedge appeared during her daily train journey to and from London: shutting herself off from the outside world, she became obsessed with the way of life of a band of hedgerow mice, later to be developed as the world of Brambly Hedge.

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)
