Summary

The mice of Brambly Hedge have been delighting adults and children alike for more than 40 years. This delightful collection contains the first four classic books. 

The mice of Brambly Hedge have many adventures but they always have time for fun too. All through the year, they mark the seasons with feasts and festivities and, of course, the mice never miss an opportunity to meet and celebrate. This collection contains four classic stories following their adventures throughout the year. 

In Winter Story a heavy snowfall means the mice can hold a Snow Ball for the first time in years. In Autumn Story Primrose makes friends with the harvest mice before losing her way in the chestnut woods. Wilfred gets a birthday surprise in Spring Story, when all the mice club together to organise a fantastic picnic for him; and in Summer Story, Poppy Eyebright and Dusty Dogwood get engaged and a wonderful wedding is planned by all the mice of Brambly Hedge. 

Contains: Spring Story, Summer Story, Autumn Story, Winter Story

A bit disappointed 😞

Seems like bits have been edited out from what I remember. On the whole still a listen and great for children but you may be left a deflated if you remember the stories from childhood.
