The Hedgehog, a character with a palpable personality that you will love, is a beacon of light throughout the story. For example, even though it is raining, he can't wait to wear his new boots. Moreover, he enjoys playing with his gear in the storm, but Mole struggles with the spate of water and wind. In fact, his house has been blown away and he ask Hedgehog to help him find another home. Yet, the author never solves this problem in my opinion-all the animals in the story find refuge at Badger's house. Overall, the setting and description of the story enhances the book, but author did not tie up all loose ends.
