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 *

“A strange one”

An odd collection of stories... honestly, I found them hard going and a bit long winded. That said, I kept picking it back up! The stories had great messages. I loved the last one, The Night Princess.
