Little Hedgehog's legs are too short for him to keep up with his family on their trip to the country
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Kindergarten-Grade 3?Little Hedgehog hurries along as fast as his short legs can carry him, but he's still not quick enough to keep up with his mother and four brothers and sisters. Convinced that they are just around the next corner, he hastens after them, mistaking a number of hedgehog look-alikes for his parent and siblings along the way?a circle of prickly mushrooms, a broken teasel twig, a bunch of spiny chestnut burrs. He remains unflappable up until the moment a huge dog comes bounding up to him. Terrified, he curls into a tight ball as powerful jaws pick him up and carry him off, only to drop him further down the path. When he opens his eyes, he sees five prickly figures, and this time they really are his family. Rowe's detailed watercolors capture all the richness of the ripening berries, fallen leaves, and final flowers of autumn in the country. The mood is gentle, the creatures more tickly then prickly. Even the dog, which so frightens Little Hedgehog, appears playful and friendly. Readers will delight in the adventure of the gently quizzical hero as he is finally reunited with his loved ones.?Lisa Wu Stowe, Great Neck Library, NY
