In "Go Home Little One" by Cate James, a tiny and very cute little Hedgehog called Florence (ace name!) is watching the seasons change, along with her two little squirrel friends. Though she loves spring, adores summer and enjoys autumn, she has never seen a winter because just as the weather turns colder and the snows begin to fall, it's time to hibernate.
Our determined and plucky little hedgehog stays out in the snow with her friends right until the last minute, straying further and further from home despite her mum's warnings not to go too far.
But danger lurks in the woods. Will Florence heed the warnings of the other animals she encounters with her friends before it's too late, and she becomes a snack for a wily fox?
Cate James' story is chock full of atmosphere and the most beautiful artwork as we follow the antics of Florence the Hedgehog and her two rather mischievous pals on their journey out into the snows of winter.
Charming and adorable, a wintry winner!
