4.75 / 7.0

The illustrations for this book are super cute, and the story is very sweet. The transformation of the caterpillar into the butterfly followed by the “transformation” of these two friends teach a little something about the animal kingdom and creative thinking.

This book is really sweet. I love that the caterpillar sparked their curiosity and prompted them to try out an experiment of their own! The illustrations in this book are sweet to match the feel of the story, and I love the soft, beautiful colors!

Who Wrote Hedgehugs and the Hattiepillar

author
Steve Wilson

he Hedgehugs are the invention of husband-and-wife team, Lucy Tapper and Steve Wilson. Lucy and Steve live in the beautiful Devon countryside with their two little girls and two rabbits (but no hedgehogs – Horace and Hattie keep them busy enough).

Together, Lucy and Steve write down the Hedgehugs’ adventures and then Lucy sketches the pictures. If you look very carefully at the illustrations, you’ll see almost everything pictured in the books has a beautiful pattern. That’s because they’re made up of tiny pieces of soft, snuggly fabric, which Lucy salvaged from her little girls’ baby clothes and photographed. So each book is a scrapbook of their babyhood, as well as an enchanting story.

Lucy loves drawing in the garden and when he isn’t writing, Steve loves to go for bicycle rides. As well as being husband and wife, and colleagues, too, they are also the very best of friends. There is secretly a little bit of Horace and Hattie in them both
