Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Hedgehog and Rabbit are a winning pair." —Daily Telegraph

"A little treasure of a book with an enviably original idea." —Naomi Lewis, T.E.S.

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Of this tale of two animal friends, one who hibernates and one who doesn't, PW wrote, "Stewart handily employs spare sentences and snappy dialogue, and the emotional connection between Rabbit and Hedgehog emits warmth and wit." Ages 3-7. (Dec.) Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature - Mary Sue Preissner
As winter approaches, hedgehog asks rabbit to save a piece of winter for him so that he can understand exactly what winter is like. As hedgehog hibernates, rabbit goes about his days scurrying around to find food. Accidentally dropping an acorn, it rolls and rolls through the snow, gathering mass as it travels downhill. Rabbit ingeniously wraps the snow-encrusted acorn in leaves for insulation and buries it underground in his burrow. Upon awakening, hedgehog accuses rabbit of eating all of winter and is greeted with a soft brown ball, which only confuses hedgehog. Rabbit unwraps the now very small snowball and presents it to hedgehog, who is thrilled that his friend remembered to save him a bit of winter. Riddell's warm earth-tone illustrations bring these unlikely friends to life and are reminiscent of Beatrix Potter.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Every year just before winter arrives, Hedgehog settles down for a long nap. Wondering what that season is really like, he enlists Rabbit to save "a little bit" of it for him. Rabbit agrees to help but is forgetful. Midwinter, Rabbit comes across a message inscribed on the bark of a tree reminding him of the request and comes up with an ingenious way to preserve a piece of winter for his appreciative friend. Children will laugh at the animals as they toss zippy dialogue back and forth as real friends do. Riddell alternates full-color and white backgrounds and full-page and spot illustrations effectively. The facial expressions and comic mannerisms of the creatures will allow youngsters plenty of opportunities to surmise how the story is progressing while the endpapers and illustrations echo the seasonal changes beginning in the throes of winter and ending in the lushness of spring.-Lisa Gangemi Krapp, formerly at Sousa Elementary School, Port Washington, NY

    a story of friendship

    Both my children love this book. The characters are so expressive and sensitively written. The illustrations are charming and filled with emotion. A great book!

    Laughed ourselves silly

    My son got this book from the library. He read it to us over and over. My husband and I were even laughing over the beautiful, descriptive words and the expressions on the faces of the little creatures. The story is simple, but words are very exact and colorful. A perfect family book. Now we are buying it to add to our personal library!
