A Very Cute Book About Hedgehogs




I got 'The Hedgehog Leaves Home' at Ikea. It is adorable. Delightful. And I believe jackrabbit poop is mentioned. My nephew is getting this copy and I hope he loves the part about the jackrabbit poop! You should all run right down to Ikea and find this charming and fun book.

Want a little more review? Hedgie's mama decides he is big enough to go see the world. Let's ponder on this a moment - basically she's like, time to make like a tree and leave and here's a kissy as the door knocks ya on the back ~ Oh and watch out for the big wide world!

Sound, wise advice.

Always watch out for the big wide world.

So he goes out trying to find a friend to live with, since apparently Mama is tired of being a mom or something. SPOILER ALERT - he winds up with a Bear and they become cave buddies.

Me being a silly pants aside, this book is so cute and sweet, and also Ikea is selling little Hedgie stuffies and we got the stuffy to go with the book, for my nephew. Isn't that so adoraboo?

Have you all seen any books from Ikea? The art is really amazing in all the ones I've seen! (Here's another beautiful Ikea book I reviewed in 2013) The stories all seem to involve plucky little peoples and animals and they're very Scandi, in my opinion. Probably because they appear to be created by real live European people, which makes them way cool. (I have no idea if the writer and artist are actually Scandinavian, but they have very cool sounding names and I'm going to assume wildly about things I know nothing about. Hurray!)

    1. Okay, I picked up a huge number (20!!!) of holds from the library today, many of which were Christmasy and/or Scandinavian in theme, and I noticed that one of the books is by the same author as this one! (Different illustrator.) http://www.amazon.com/The-Yule-Tomte-Little-Rabbits/dp/1782501363

    2. I'm a 3.5 hour flight-and it breaks my heart! We were in Florida in October, and I visited IKEA for the first time-and fell in deep, deep love. There were two small furniture things I was blown away by, but couldn't think of a way to get them on the plane. Now I am kicking myself for not making it work-I should have left my clothes and taken the IKEA kitchen cart and night table!

    3. By the way, my nearest IKEA is in Seattle, not Florida-I wish we were only a 3.5 hour flight from Walt Disney World. I swear I am almost contemplating a road trip from Anchorage to Seattle-just for the shopping!
