No one wants to give Hedgehog a hug because of his prickly spines. But after a scary encounter with a fox (not all hugs are good!), Hedgehog finds the perfect hug. The giver of this hug was a fun twist on Hedgehog's journey to love and acceptance. The watercolor paintings are beautiful and celebrate the creatures of the forest. Betton does a wonderful job with the facial expressions of each animal, a turn of the mouth or curve of the eye depicting exactly what the animal is feeling. I definitely recommend this one!
