Default Children's books featuring hedgehogs

I am going to be an elementary school teacher so I have been collecting children's books for my future classroom. Tomorrow I am going to a library book sale and I would love to bring home some books about and/or featuring hedgehogs!

My fiance thinks I'm crazy for wanting to get hedgehog books (since we have only had Ama for a week) but I just love Ama and all hedgehogs so much that I would love to add some hedgie books to my collection.

I know Jan Brett has hedgehogs in almost all of her books, but do you guys know of any other hedgie books I should keep an eye out for?

I work in a children's library, you're in luck I'm OBSESSED with finding hedgie books. I've got a list on my desk, I'll have to find it one day!
Off the top of my head I can think of C.R.Mudgion, Perfectly Arugula, tons of Jan Brett books, The Happy Hedgehog, there's a Brothers Grimm fairy tale that includes hedgehogs, The Tale of Miss Tiggy-Winkle, and Hazel the Hedgehog.
That should help you get started! :P

Not sure if it would be in a library but when we decided on the name Henry I googled "Henry the hedgehog" out of curiousity and there was a result for a children's book so of course I just had to have it! Haha...I found my copy on amazon though. Happy book hunting!

If you could share the list with me when you find it that'd be great! I found one of the Redwall series books but I didn't see any of the others you listed.

That's so cute that you found a book using your hedgie's name! I didn't see it at the book sale and I didn't think I'd really find many hedgie books there. I'll have to find Henry the Hedgehog on Amazon too, it looks cute.



We went to IKEA and I found a little stuffed hedgehog and a book called The Hedgehog Leaves Home, so I was happy that I was able to bring home one hedgie book.

The Hedgehog Princess, by Joseph Edward Ryan
Hans my Hedgehog, by the Brothers Grimm
Hedgehog in the Fog, by Yuri Norstein and Franscesca Yarbusova

These are all storybooks that I own myself Hedgehog in the Fog has also been made into a movie, I haven't seen it yet but I have heard that it's beautiful.

I bought the Happy Hedgehog by Marcus Pfister, Hedgie's Surprise by Jan Brett, Hedgehog Bakes a Cake by Maryann Mcdonald, and Henry the Hedgehog by Anne-Marie Dalmais off of Amazon today. Each one was $4 shipped, so I thought that was a pretty good price.

I saw the Brothers Grimm story and Hedgehog in the Fog but decided not to order them since I had already bought four books. Just from the cover picture Hedgehog in the Fog looks like a beautiful book. I will have to look into the movie too.

I will definitely make a list of hedgehog books that I want and let my family know that a new hedgie book would make the perfect gift!
