Left alone with an older brother who barely notices her, Maria makes her escape to Bramblewood, where she is crowned Queen by Bullstrode Frogley, Slime Minister to the Parliament of Owls, and meets her Lady-in-Waiting, a cobalt blue parrot named Hyacinth. But a deputation of orphaned weasels sets Maria on a journey of self-discovery that can only end when she returns home to confront her brother.
Life is hard for Maria, living alone with an older brother who barely notices her. But a discovery one night in their antique shop, as she’s planning her escape, sends her off on a wild adventure to Bramblewood. A bizarre crowd of woodland characters waits there to welcome her; the Parliament of Owls, Tawny Blare and Garden Brown among them, beady-eyed Bullstrode Frogley, their Slime Minister; and of course Maria’s Lady-in-Waiting, a beautiful cobalt blue parrot named Hyacinth McCaw. But the arrival of a group of orphaned weasels begging an audience with their queen is only the start of Maria’s troubles. A chance remark by Lady Hyacinth leads Maria on a journey of self-discovery that can only end when she finally returns home to confront her brother.

The writer has the ability to sensitively address complex life issues by telling wonderful stories like Bramblewood.
I found Bramblewood exciting, funny, chilling and heart-warming at the same time. every moment you expect something and something else happens: it's full of surprises. With its twists and turns it's well structured and well paced.
Never a dull moment: once I started reading, I couldn't put it down.
