Publisher's Summary

Step into the miniature world of the hedgerow in this beautiful new edition of this classic book, following a summer in the lives of the mice of Brambly Hedge.

It was such a hot summer. They sky was deep blue and the sun never faltered. All along Brambly Hedge, the mice did their best to keep cool. Poppy Eyebright sought refuge in the mossy shadows of the mill wheel; Dusty Dogwood took to walking by the banks of the cooling stream.

Dusty and Poppy spent more and more time together, so no one was at all surprised when they announced their engagement. They decided on a very unusual setting for the wedding ceremony, but even they didn't realise just how unusual it was to prove to be!

    Story
    "Lovely"

    I loved listening to this again; it transported me back to when I'd listen to this as a child. My only disappointment is that this version doesn't include the sound effects that were on the version I had as a child. The music at the start goes on for a little too long too, but over all this is a lovely book. Good narrator too.
