Horace and Hattiepillar (Hedgehugs) by Lucy Tapper and Steve Wilson (Maverick Books)

Horace and Hattiepillar (Hedgehugs)

Can you describe hedgehogs as cuddly? Horace and Hattie the "Hedgehugs" are definitely our two fave spiny little creatures and they're back for a second outing in "Horace and Hattiepillar".

This time, Horace and Hattie find a curious little creature inching its way across the ground. The little caterpillar seems to love leaves so Horace and Hattie feed their new friend, and watch with delight as he gets bigger, and bigger, and BIGGER!

The caterpillar soon gets so big he can barely move, so attaches himself to a leaf to begin the next part of his lifecycle, much to the fascination of H & H who rather love the idea of doing this themselves.

Soon the caterpillar becomes a beautiful butterfly! Can hedgehugs fly? They can try!

A delightful and whimsical tale from Lucy and Steve, following the life cycle of a caterpillar through to a butterfly.

Charlotte's best bit: Horace and Hattie 'cocooning' themselves!

Daddy's Favourite bit: A lovely little nature lesson for tiny tiddlers with two delightful little characters to guide us through the story
