Summary
Hedgehog is hogging the hedge and won't let the other animals live there. In this humorous political allegory, he learns that it's not a winning strategy.

Winter is coming, and the animals need homes. The worms move in with the groundhogs. The possums share a burrow with the foxes. The birds and the squirrels stay in the oak tree together. The hedgehog lives in the hedge . . . all by himself. When other animals come looking for a place to stay, he's NOT interested; it's HIS hedge and everyone else can STAY OUT. He gets busy making signs, putting locks on his door and even building a fence. All he cares about is keeping the other animals out . . . but he's making a huge mistake.

Will the other animals find a home in time? Will Hedgehog learn his lesson? Is this a terrific story? Read on to find out.

Booklist Review: "Hedgehog, the garden curmudgeon, lives comfortably alone in a well-appointed hedge, while other creatures hunker down together for winter (bees and ladybugs gather in a hive, possums and foxes in a burrow). A steady stream of animals ring Hedgehog's doorbell, asking for room in the hedge, but they are quickly rebuffed. Just as quickly, Grasshopper invites them to her home under the hedge. As more and more arrive at Hedgehog's door, he becomes increasingly agitated and possessive and eventually ruins his abode. Now it is Hedgehog who has to ask for space at Grasshopper's house. She readily invites him in, and all of the garden's inhabitants settle down as snow begins to fall. The multitude of animals, depicted in a simple, childlike style, fill many of the pages but are easily identifiable in the softly colored illustrations. While the balanced text is brief and accessible to new readers, it packs drama in just the right places. Hedgehog, Grasshopper, and company do a wonderful job of demonstrating how sharing and compassion can work.--Enos, Randall Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "As winter approaches, doubly prickly Hedgehog retreats to his single-occupancy digs in the hedge, while other animals contentedly bunk together: the bees share their hive with the ladybugs and the foxes make room in their burrow for the possums. But when their residences become overcrowded and animals mosey on over to the hedge looking for shelter, unaccommodating Hedgehog lives up to his name. (Not one to mince his words, he posts a sign that reads "Mine" on the hedge-a proclamation that kids will both identify with and snicker at.) Meanwhile cheerful Grasshopper welcomes all in need into his humble abode underneath the hedge, and even makes room for contrite Hedgehog, who arrives with a pie-to share!-after his vehement door slam topples his home. Ample humor, displayed in punchy speech balloons and mixed-media cartoons that contrast scowling Hedgehog with his perky neighbors, helps Anstee (Are We There, Yeti?) deliver her message without a trace of didacticism. This entertaining tale will easily open doors to dialogue about generosity, forgiveness, and the importance of recognizing that "there's always room for one more." Ages 3-7.
