In 1980 Collins published four little picture books by a young author and illustrator, Jill Barklem. The charming books chronicle the lives and adventures of a community of mice who live in Brambly Hedge. Brambly Hedge is an idyllic spot where old values flourish and seasonal self-sufficiency is the order of the day. Intended for small children, the books were an immediate success with readers of all ages.
We are pleased to carry these wonderful childs tea sets that would be the perfect gift for Brambly Hedge fans, young and old.
