O is for One Snowy Night by M Christina Butler and Tina Macnaughton
A present from Father Christmas leads to adventures in the snow for Little Hedgehog and his friends in One Snowy Night. My daughter loves the adventures of Little Hedgehog and the woodland animals and in our edition a touch and feel element is given to Tina Macnaughton’s gorgeous illustrations.
The Story: Little Hedgehog is too cold to sleep. Suddenly a present from Father Christmas falls out of the sky, it’s a hat which doesn’t fit him. Little Hedgehog braves the snow to give the hat to Rabbit but then gets lost on his way home. Rabbit gives the hat to Badger who then gives it to Fox. When Fox finds Little Hedgehog frozen in the snow he carries him in the hat to Rabbit’s House. Little Hedgehog is so warm and cosy that he soon falls into a deep winter sleep.
