The little hedgehog and its siblings live underneath a woodpile in the garden. Its curiosity leads the little hedgehog on an adventure-filled solo journey of discovery. Toward the evening, Mum comes out into the garden as well and takes the little runaway back home. Together with its siblings, they look for food. After an exciting evening, the little hedgehog cuddles up with its mum in the nest. A charming read-aloud story with catchy text for little nature explorers.
