MEDIA REVIEWS
"These joyful stories are a delight." * The Times *
"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 *
"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 *
"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 *
"Absolutely gorgeous . . . Perfect for sharing and for reading alone, I can't recommend Blackberry Blue and Other Fairy Tales highly enough." * The Bookbag *
