in 1980 Collins published four gentle enchanting books about the community of mice who live in Brambly Hedge. written by Jill Barklem the stories were intended to teach small children old-fashioned values and self sufficiency. called Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter Story, these books have been translated into thirteen languages and more than a million copies were printed. sadly now they are in danger of running out of print but it may be possible to obtain second-hand copies. four delightful videos were also made.
