In story and artwork as delicate as milkweed floss, Paul tells the story of young Hedgehog’s tribulations as a budding magician…The story has a sweetness that can’t be denied, and the artwork is both delicate, as if painted on bone china, and transporting: For all its etherealness, you could take a bite out of the cake.
At its heart, this gentle story is about empathy—always a good lesson for kids learning the push and pull of a social world.
A sweet story about the magic of friendship.
—School Library Journal
A charming story with equally delightful illustrations, this selection on friendship and kindness is lovely.
