‘Elena Mannion’s book is a welcome reminder that hedgerows are our greatest nature reserves’
Sir Andrew Motion, Vice President, CPRE

In this, the first children’s book to celebrate the wonderful, humble hedgerow, Elena Mannion’s poignant story brings to life this glorious feature of our landscapes. Somewhere in the folds of the countryside, Old Oak lives content and fulfilled in his hedgerow. When the farmer pulls up the Far Hedgerow one day, Old Oak is dismayed. Can he care for all the fleeing birds? The field is now too open, and the wind and rain are carrying away the soil! Hope is finally restored when a new farmer comes to plant saplings one cold winter’s morning. With glorious, detailed illustrations by Erin Brown, the countryside is joyfully celebrated in this unique tribute to our hedgerows.
