Product description

Review

Absolutely gorgeous . . . Perfect for sharing and for reading alone, I can't recommend Blackberry Blue and Other Fairy Tales highly enough. * The Bookbag * Gavin's six stories are spooky, engaging and refreshing in their originality. Complemented by Richard Collingridge's atmospheric illustrations, this lovely book deserves to become a classic. -- Marilyn Brocklehurst * Bookseller * Jamila Gavin is one of our most consistently good writers of fiction for children young and old [...] the feel is timeless, but the stories are all original, touched with the magic of Gavin's vibrant and varied imagination. * Independent on Sunday * Love, sacrifice and endurance are foregrounded in these timeless-feeling tales, delivered in language as sharp and sweet as the ripe fruit of the title. An instant classic, subtly enriched by Richard Collingridge's delicate, shadowy illustrations. * Metro * These joyful stories are a delight. * The Times * --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Inside Flap

‘Dearest daughter, sweetest born,
Make a cloak of briar and thorn.
It will keep you safe and well
And save you from the witch’s spell.’

Here are six magical stories to thrill and enchant you. Watch Blackberry Blue rise from the bramble patch; follow Emeka the Pathfinder on his mission to save a lost king; join Princess Desire as she gallops across the Milky Way on her jet-black horse.

These beautifully written and original stories will delight readers of all ages, and the stunning illustrations by Richard Collingridge will take your breath away. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
