Annotation

Hedgehog was feeling sad. As sad as a hedgehog can feel. So sad only one thing could help... Tortoise was feeling sad. As sad as a hedgehog can feel. So sad only one thing could help... In this clever flipbook, both a hedgehog and a tortoise are looking for a hug.

Summary

Hedgehog was feeling sad.
As sad as a hedgehog can feel.
So sad only one thing could help...

Tortoise was feeling sad.
As sad as a hedgehog can feel.
So sad only one thing could help...

In this clever flipbook, both a hedgehog and a tortoise are looking for a hug. They ask all the other animals they come across but for some reason no-one will hug them. Until a wise owl explains: Hedgehog is too spiky; Tortoise is too bony.

And that's when they find each other! A hug - at last!

A beautiful, heartwarming picture book with all the universal appeal of Guess How Much I Love You.
