The Lovereading4Kids comment
September 2016 Book of the Month Isaac the hedgehog made his debut in The Very Helpful Hedgehog which was much liked at Lovereading4kids. He’s back in a new adventure just right for this time of year, the pages saturated in the golds, reds and browns of autumn. Though winter is drawing in, Isaac isn’t ready for bed and as his friends make their preparations for cold days, he plays instead with the North Wind. It’s a lovely story steeped in the countryside and the natural world while allowing for flights of the imagination. Isaac is a very appealing character and children will run to copy him playing with the leaves and sky-gazing while the wind blows. ~ Andrea Reece
Wide-Awake Hedgehog by Rosie Wellesley
Isaac, the lovable hedgehog, isn't sleepy. In fact, he's quite the opposite - he's wide awake and wants to play. However, autumn is coming and all his little friends want to go into hibernation. They are so sleepy and struggling to keep their eyes open! Isaac tries to call on everyone he knows, but the only person who will play with him is an invisible friend. Will the games with his friend be enough to tire him out for a long, long sleep?
This new book featuring Rosie’s much-loved hedgehog character explores the seasons and nature, changes in the world around us and animal behaviour, told through a simple, gentle and fun story, perfect for cosying up at bedtime with even the littlest wide-awake hedgehogs!
