“Hedgehugs: Horace and Hattiepillar” by Lucy Tapper & Steve Wilson. (Book Review)

It’s downright shocking how cute this book is! 😉

Emma is a little reader!

Horace and Hattie are our favorite hedgehog best buddies who are at it again… and by it I mean being sweet and playing nicely together, watching blossoms fall, climbing trees, and spotting the first star in the night sky. One day they discover a small caterpillar. They watch for weeks as it eats and eats , wait for it as it sleeps in its cocoon, and delight in awe as it reemerges a beautiful butterfly. Can Horace and Hattie do what it takes to be butterflies too? Dolly is currently a very big fan on Eric Carle’s “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” and was happy to see another caterpillar story! There aren’t many similarities besides the actual transformation from caterpillar to butterfly, because here, the two best friends are the charming stars of the show. I love the perfectly sweet and funny ending. The illustrations are created from all different colored and styled patterns, zigzags, dots and stripes, each seemingly a different texture, which is such a pleasing and unique form for a children’s book! We just cannot get enough of Horace and Hattie! If you liked this book, you will love “Hedgehugs”, check out our review from Monday on the site!
