What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Isaac the Hedgehog has had a long winter sleep. He’s just woken up and is having a bad hair day (well, you try looking perfect when you’ve been asleep for four months!). He’s also very hungry and in search of food. But every time he finds something to eat another creature gets there first. And when hedgehog himself becomes the target of a bigger animal’s appetite, will his spikes save him from becoming someone else’s breakfast? Rosie Wellesley’s beautiful illustrations capture all the joy and bounty of spring, its bright colours, optimism and hope.
