Item description for Apricots at Midnight by Adele Geras...

A delightful tapestry of a magical, lost-world society comes together in this poetic and humorous story for children. The amazing tales behind the squares of this wonderful and time-worn quilt are unraveled: a red velvet patch recalls an exquisite dress ball and a magical midnight feast with a highwayman, while a square of green brocade carries memories of Captain Tramlemousse, a pirate. Children will immerse themselves in the beautiful language and fantastical characters of this beautifully written book.

Reviews - What do customers think about Apricots at Midnight?

Fantastic  Jun 9, 2006
I read this book when i was about 8 years old i got it from my school library, i absolutly adored it and could not put it down, i tlaked about it so much my mum still remembers it and i am definatly going to buy a copy!
From what i can remember is a grandmothre telling the little girl a bed time story from her quilt she had made her! Any little girl will love it!
My favorite book when I was 10 or 11.  Apr 30, 1999
Unfortunately, I don't remember Apricots at Midnight very well because it's been 3 or 4 years since I read it. The plot (as I remember it) was about a grandmother who tells her daughter a story each night, each one from a different patch on the patchwork quilt on the girl's bed. All the stories were wonderful. I remember one ghost story about a girl who died wearing a beautiful lace dress (it really scared me), and another one that had to do with stuffed animals-- the patch was cut from the side of a zebra. If it's the same as I remember it, it's recommended very very highly.
