Reviews

"An exciting visual experience. . . Wordplay and engaging images are joined expertly to a theme of love and compassion." --Kirkus Reviews

"Featuring expressive animal images that pop from white backdrops and are at once softly focused and realistic, [this] mixed-media art lays bare Hedgehog's dismay after he wakes up feeling "down in the snout and droopy in the prickles" and none of his friends is willing to give him a hug. . . . In a sweet conclusion that amplifies the story's directive to look beyond appearances and eschew stereotypes, Hedgehog finds his hug, and unconditional friendship." --Publishers Weekly
