Hedgehog Book Bash with Jen Betton

Come to Blue Bunny Books for a special story time with author-illustrator Jen Betton reading her new book HEDGEHOG NEEDS A HUG, followed fun crafts, snacks, and a signing! Kids of all ages welcome!

Hedgehog wakes up feeling down and droopy, but he knows a hug will make him feel better. None of his forest friends are eager to wrap their arms around his prickles, and he's too smart to fall for Fox's sly offer. Will he ever find his hug?

"Wordplay and engaging images are joined expertly to
a theme of love and compassion" – Kirkus

"Gentle and winsome... Featuring expressive animal images that pop from white backdrops and are at once softly focused and realistic... in a sweet conclusion that amplifies the story’s directive to look beyond appearances and eschew stereotypes, Hedgehog finds his hug," – Publisher's Weekly
