Staff Reviews


Everyone gets sad sometimes, even a prickly Hedgehog. Hedgehog thinks that a hug will make him feel better, but all of his friends have excuses to not hug him: Rabbit doesn’t want to give him his cold, Raccoon doesn’t want Hedgehog to smell his “garbage breath”, and Fox gets a surprise when he tries to give him a “kiss.” Then he hears soft sobs and finds a kindred spirit who needs a hug too.

— From Amy's Picks

Description


Everyone needs hugs, even if they're prickly.

When Hedgehog wakes up feeling down in the snout and droopy in the prickles, he knows a hug will make him feel much better. But none of his animal friends are eager to wrap their arms around Hedgehog's prickles, and he's too smart to fall for Fox's sly offer.

Then Hedgehog gets a surprise: Another animal in the forest is feeling exactly the same way.

Luckily, both are kind and brave enough for the perfect hug.
