Hedgehog yawned. "Time for me to go to bed," he said. "So soon?" said Rabbit. "Yes, Rabbit," said Hedgehog. "You are a day creature and I am a night creature. That is the way it is."
Every morning Rabbit has to say good night to his best friend. Even though Rabbit understands that's just the way it is, it doesn't mean that he has to like it. The truth is Rabbit doesn't like it one bit. During the long hours of the day, he misses his friend something awful and wishes that just for once Hedgehog could stay up with him all day. When a rainy day leads to flooding, Rabbit's wish comes true. Both Rabbit and Hedgehog are forced to flee to higher ground, where they spend the rest of the day together. And what a day they have!
In this charming sequel to A Little Bit of Winter and The Birthday Presents, Rabbit and Hedgehog realize that sometimes there's nothing like spending the day with your very best friend.

Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell have previously collaborated on the bestselling Edge Chronicles.From Booklist:
Ages 4-6. Best friends Rabbit and Hedgehog have a problem: Hedgehog is nocturnal. Rabbit longs to spend a whole day with his friend. He gets his wish when heavy rain falls, flooding both animals' homes. The friends then pass the time and amuse each other until the rainwater recedes. "It was my fault that this happened," admits Rabbit. "I wished you could stay up all day with me . . . . And my wish came true." "I'm glad that it did," replies Hedgehog, who goes on to suggest that sometime Rabbit stay up all night. The soft, expressive watercolor illustrations are a good match for this story about friendship (along the lines of Frog and Toad books), which will work well as a read-aloud or for a lap-sit session.
