Editorial Reviews

Criticas
K-Gr 2-The author and illustrator of the ever-popular Rainbow Fish series (El pez arco iris [The Rainbow Fish], North-South, 1996) has come up with yet another delightful character. Tino, a hedgehog, loves to lie on his back and look at the clouds blow across the sky. He also knows the name and medicinal powers of every plant in the garden. But Tino's grandfather tells him that he spends too much time lollygagging and should be out in the world, making something of himself. So the hedgehog goes out to explore and discovers a turtle training hard for a race, a hare hard at work in school, and a badger lifting weights. After a day of exploring, Tino finds his grandfather with a cough and concocts a tea to cure him as he comes to terms with Tino's choices. In a day when so many children are pushed to develop their skills in so many different areas, this book offers an important reminder to take the time to value each person's individuality. A beautifully told and illustrated story for bookstores and libraries.
