🦔 A friend or customer of Hamor Hollow Hedgehogs recommended this product!

Jan Brett was one of the first authors we ran across who writes children's books about hedgies. Her drawing style is classic and timeless, and deserves a slot on any kid's bookshelf! She's a favorite over here at Hamor Hollow Hedgehogs.


Jan Brett's beloved character Hedgie stars in this charming story about a little Tomten who gets tired of porridge for breakfast and starts stealing Henny's eggs. But Henny wants a brood of chicks and she needs her eggs.

With the help of clever Hedgie, she substitutes an acorn, a strawberry, a mushroom and finally a potato in her nest. But nothing stops that Tomten until the little hedgehog hides in Henny's nest: when the Tomten reaches in to get his morning treat, all he gets is a handful of prickles. He runs home for porridge and never comes back again!

Intricate needlepoint patterns of Scandinavian designs frame the characters reacting from the borders in this beautiful picture book set in Denmark.
