About the Author

Jill Barklem was born in Epping in 1951. After an accident when she was thirteen, Jill was unable to take part in PE or games at school and instead developed her talent for drawing and art. On leaving school, she studies illustration at St Martin's in London. Jill is now a full-time illustrator, working on the expanding series of books about the mice of Brambly Hedge. She lives in Epping, Essex.


Gr 1-4 Absolutely stunning watercolor illustrations, full of rich details, perfectly capture the tone of this charming story about the field mice who reside in Brambly Hedge. The voles in the High Hills are in desperate need of new blankets before the cold weather arrives, and young mouse Wilfred decides to accompany Mr. Apple on his good-will mission to deliver the mouse-made quilts. Wilfred welcomes the opportunity to explore unknown territory and dreams of discovering gold on his journey. Mr. Apple and Wilfred bravely face the obstacles they encounter, and lucky Wilfred returns home with a surprise treasure after all. Young children will enjoy hearing of Wilfred's adventures (older children can handle the clearly written text themselves), and will find much to delight the eye in the old-fashioned and cheerful pictures.Bonnie R.
