From the ‘Brambly Hedge’ series. D’aww.

The Story.

Oh no! The voles in the High Hills have just discovered that the moths have eaten all of their quilts, and winter is fast approaching! What can be done?

Down in the valley, Lily and Flax decide that they will help out by making blankets on their looms. Wilfred wants to help, but he is too little of a mousekin to operate the loom. However, he’s not too young to help carry the blankets into the High Hills and, when he and Mr. Apple get lost, Wilfred

For the story, think Beatrix Potter's Peter Rabbit stories with mice and without the sometimes surprising lapses into violence that forcibly remind you that Potter wrote in a different cultural context. In Potter's world, Mr. MacGregor has a distressing habit of stalking through the pages taking potshots at the cast with his shotgun. That sort of thing doesn't happen in the Brambly Hedge.

So a charming story, but it was the illustrations with their incredibly rich detail that won my heart. Small
Glimpsing into the workshops of the mice in the hedgerow, we first see the weaver's place. A tableau of finished cloth, wool to be spun, and skeins drying after being dyed fill the eyes. The weaver must make quilts for voles who have lost their to moth damage. Another instance of communal caring and sharing. The journey to deliver them is the adventure of this story.

Charming illustrations. I love the pictures in the Brambly Hedge books.

This is an advanced picture book, very heavy on text, although there are plenty of wonderful illustrations too. The tiny and wonderfully detailed pictures I could view over & over, and for long periods.

The story is sweet but didn’t wow me, and while it would have probably held my interest as a young child, I don’t think it would have ever been a favorite. The shooting the rapids part was fun, but even there it was the pic
The Brambly Hedge stories were a favorite when I was a kid, and this week upon my visit home, I had the pleasure of going into my hope chest and re-reading some of them along with some other treasured kids books. This authors love of nature, rustic craft and culture really shines through in the illustrations of her books. There is so much to look at, so much detail to take in, I absolutely love them. As a child my imagination was set ablaze while reading these books.
To be fair, it has been a long time since I read this book, but I recall not liking this story as much as the others. Perhaps it is because we journey away from the beloved Brambly Hedge, which is what I wanted to be reading about.
Perhaps when I go home again, I'll take another look at the book.

This book was read to me as a small child--I'm guessing on just when, but it's one I remembered long after it disappeared into the depths of the basement, and reread with happy nostalgia after it was recovered. The illustrations are beautiful, and the story is fun. Read this book to your offspring.
