In this instant winter classic, Jan Brett’s Hedgie tries to stay awake so he doesn’t miss out on all the snowy fun his friends are having.
A chill is in the air, and as Hedgie trundles around the farm all his friends tell him of the winter-time fun he will miss as he hibernates: Icicles decorating the chicken coop! Lisa making snowmen! The pond turned to slippery ice!
It sounds so amazing that Hedgie decides to stay awake instead of going to his burrow. But then, a snowstorm starts. Luckily, Lisa finds him and brings him to her home, so Hedgie gets to see the wonders of winter from inside the cozy house.
From the creator of winter classics like The Mitten, The Animals’ Santa, and The Three Snow Bears comes another seasonal adventure that is sure to warm the heart.
