This sweetly illustrated children’s book is the story of two hedgehog best friends, Horace and Hattie. Horace and Hattie do many things together like make daisy chains and search for four leaf clovers.
They really are best friends but discover that no matter how hard they try ,a hedgehog can’t hug because of their spikey sharp prickles.
They try all kinds of ways to soften their spikes until they stumble upon something magical that allows them to finally give the perfect Hedgehug.
I loved the sweet message of friendship and working together to find a solution to a problem within this book and Hamish immediately related to the little hedgehogs. A sweet read and a lovely bedtime story.

Whilst the activity book is geared at older children, Hamish enjoyed working through many of the fun pages, meeting the cute characters and colouring in the pages.
He loves Table mountain and points it out on our daily walks.
Although he hasn’t yet been able to go up the mountain, he is now aware that a cable car will take him to the top and we have set the treasure hunt aside and decided his birthday gift in September will be a trip up his beloved mountain.
This is a great way to teach the kids and build their general knowledge.
It would make a lovely family project or fun extra activity if your child is completing this assigned school work earlier.
