Product details

A world of strawberries, birds, gardens and cheeky foxes comes to life in this collection of 3 short, delightful works.


1. The Strawberry Thief illustrates a fleeting encounter of an inquisitive bird as it searches for its breakfast! Flitting between the flower beds, taking a dip in the birdbath, the little thief eventually escapes with a strawberry!

2. The Secret Garden illustrates soft misty rain in a secluded garden, with the smell of wet grass and bark from the nearby gumtree, droplets gently dripping from the leaves of the roses, and spiderwebs glistening.

3. The Little Red Fox is a playful and whimsical curiosity - a cheeky fox frolicking around a garden and neighbouring fields.

The Strawberry Thief, The Secret Garden and The Little Red Fox form a set of three short works that bring us into a world of birds, gardens and cheeky foxes, written to commemorate 40 years of marriage.

The commissioners, Stephanie and Ross Burton sent the composer, Sally Greenaway, an 'inspiration book' of all of their shared 'favourite things'. Included were photos of English and Australian Gardens, handmade crafts like ceramics and quilting, tapestry patterns by Victorian-era English designer William Morris and little painted illustrations of a young family of foxes.
