Review: Hedgehugs: Horace and Hattiepillar

Horace and Hattie are the best of friends. They do absolutely everything together, from watching blossoms fall from trees to playing hide and seek. They are absolutely inseparable!

When Horace and Hattie find something small and shiny under a leaf, they watch, in suspense, as it grows.

What it becomes astounds them and they are inspired to become just like it!

Hedgehugs: Horace and Hattiepillar takes on the small caterpillar turning into a colourful butterfly theme, but with a twist.

Hattie and Horace watch curiously as the caterpillar eats and eats before wrapping itself in a cocoon. When a beautiful butterfly emerges, Horace and Hattie wish to be as beautiful and graceful as the butterfly.

Read along as Hattie and Horace follow in the footsteps of the butterfly in their quest to be just as colourful.

This book is packed with colour and beautiful illustrations and textures to awaken the imagination of the reader. The text is large and easy to read. The illustrations are simple yet cute and there is plenty of them.

This book is well worth its RRP and I highly recommend it.
