The Lovereading4Kids comment
Best friends Horace and Hattie find an egg under a leaf. The two little hedgehogs watch a caterpillar crawl out, and keep watching as it eats and eats, and turns into a chrysalis. They are there to see the butterfly emerge too and it makes them want to transform themselves into something colourful and wonderful. A sleep in a fluffy bed of flowers has an almost magical effect, and they even find a way to fly too – on swings! This charming little story works as an introduction to the life cycle of the butterfly but is also a sweet and inspiring story about the natural world, and about friendship. ~ Andrea Reece
A Piece of Passion from Maverick Arts Publishing Everyone at Maverick loves Hedgehugs and we are so excited to have a second book to offer. Hattiepillar (as we call it), really is a very sweet story and shows Horace and Hattie’s inquisitive nature and love of discovery. The illustrations, done by Lucy, are superb with a real charm to them. There will definitely be more Hedgehugs books coming along in the future.
Horace and Hattiepillar by Steve Wilson
Horace and Hattiepillar introduces the curious nature of the two adorable hedgehogs, when they find something little and interesting under a leaf. They watch the little catterpillar grow and transform into a beautiful butterfly and then they decide they want to be beautiful too.
