5.0 out of 5 stars great book 4 Dec 2011
By dashaka - Published on Amazon.com
"Hedgehog in the fog" was created on the basis of a famous Russian cartoon by Norstein and Yarbusova, which is instantly recognized by any Russian. The illustrations are fantastic (I believe Miyazaki once said that he was inspired by Norstein), and the quality is excellent. The book exists both in Russian and English versions and is a great present for a child or an adult alike. We have all the books from the series, and my son, who is almost 5, loves them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous Gift 10 Dec 2011
By Ms. S. E. Rushbrook - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Got this for my nephew on the basis of Norstein being my favourite animator of all time. Yarbusova's drawings and Norstein's effects are as delightful as ever, in some ways seeing stills of this is such a treat because I am always so focused on the incredible sense of movement in Norsteins animations, the light effects and the fog too that I forget to take in all the details. The illustrations and pages are wonderfully big and the story itself has been beautifully condensed into something I think would make sense to kids of most ages. There is a depth of characterisation and an exploration of identity and the fear of the unknown in this which feels far more potent than the average children's story. Hedgehog and Bear are gentle creatures and their friendship has a genuinely touching quality to it. In the context of the fog all the other animals (both the threatening and the harmless ones) appear frightening but once hedgehog gives in and allows himself to be carried along in by the current he is rescued by one of these unknown creatures and carried back to safe familiar ground, and to the side of his good friend. I can't wait to give it to him for Christmas, I hope the story touches him as much as it did me and I can't wait until he's old enough to discover the animation. I wish I'd had this book to grow up with, I often feel like a hedgehog in the fog myself, even now.

By Anna Karenina - Published on Amazon.com
This is a great cartoon and illustrations by Francesca Yarbusova are a masterpiece. The book preserve the charm of the original cartoon by Norshtein. Illustrations dominate each page. My toddler is crazy about it, great quality book!

This was my favorite cartoon in Russia, had to buy it for my English speaking son. This is a touching story, somehow slow but sweet. I recommend to find a cartoon as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Story 15 Feb 2014
By Julia King - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I grew up with the cartoon so I am probably partial, but my american-born husband, and my 2.5 year old kid love it as well. The book is done beautifully, and the story is just so sweet. We now read it to our son almost every night, and he's sharing the "Hedgehog in the Fog" story with his friends. So glad I found it!
