Product Details


“I have been in love with this book since my early childhood…I hope that young people everywhere will enjoy this exquisite classic as much as I still do.” —Julie Andrews
“The plot, involving three gnomes who set off upstream in search of a fourth who went a-questing two years earlier, is thoroughly wrapped in rhapsodic descriptions of bird song and nodding wildflowers, bubbling waters, breezes and storms, grassy pastures, the pleasures of angling, and nature observed from ground level…. [F]ans of Wind in the Willows will feel right at home…. The story winds down to a happy twist at the end. Given patient listeners, this Carnegie Medal–winner makes a leisurely but finally engaging read-aloud.” —Kirkus
“Though it’s a little galling to discover that I am not the only person who thinks that 1941’s [Carnegie Medal] winner, The Little Grey Men by BB, is a terrifically moving elegy for an England now almost extinct, it is gladdening in the extreme to know that other people have also been beguiled by the beauty of a meticulously observed countryside inhabited by gnomes with a passion for pipe-smoking.” —Olivia Laing, “In Praise of the Carnegie Medal,” The Guardian
The Little Grey Men established (Denys Watkins-Pitchford, A.K.A. ‘B.B.’) at the forefront of children’s literature.” —CILIP Carnegie & Kate Greenaway Children’s Book Awards
