Synopsis:

Hedgehog is hogging the hedge and won’t let the other animals live there. In this humorous political allegory, he learns that it’s not a winning strategy.

Winter is coming, and the animals need homes. The worms move in with the ground hogs. The possums share a burrow with the foxes. The birds and the squirrels stay in the oak tree together. The hedgehog lives in the hedge . . . all by himself. When other animals come looking for a place to stay, he’s NOT interested: it’s HIS hedge and everyone else can STAY OUT. He gets busy making signs, putting locks on his door and even building a fence. All he cares about is keeping the other animals out… but he’s making a huge mistake.

Will the other animals find a home in time? Will Hedgehog learn his lesson?

One Line Review: Some adults need to read this.

Beautiful animation. That’s very important in a picture book. This was an adorable story with a valuable lesson. Very simple and straight forward. Any child would learn the importance of sharing and the repercussions of being selfish from getting to know this Hedge Hog. A must read for kids in KG1 and up. I’d even lend it to a few adults myself!
