It Was Amazing

 

The writing and illustrations are brilliant. Echos of Winnie The Pooh makes this delightful children’s book fresh yet familiar.
It’s such a nice cozy read and the vocabulary is sophisticated without being daunting.
I loved it.

Our Friend Hedgehog feels like a modern-day Winnie
the Pooh
 . It’s so warm and full of joy and love. It’s got classic
written all over it.” –Victoria Jamieson, Newbery Honor-winning author
of Roller Girl

Sometimes you make a friend,
and it feels like you have known that friend your entire life. . .
.
Hedgehog lives on a teeny-tiny island with only her stuffed dog,
Mutty, for company. When a great storm carries Mutty away, she embarks on a
quest to find her friend. Following the trail of clues Mutty left behind, brave
Hedgehog meets a wiggly Mole, a wordy Owl, a curmudgeonly Beaver, a
scatterbrained Hen and Chicks, and a girl who’s new to the neighborhood, Annika
May. With bravery and teamwork, there’s nothing that can stop these seven from
finding Mutty, but along the way they discover something even more important:
each other.
The first book in a new series from Caldecott Honor winner Lauren
Castillo, Our Friend Hedgehog: The Story of Us has the feel of a
timeless classic, introducing an unforgettable cast of characters who will star
in many more adventures to come.
