The first and second Hedgehugs books were released in a board book format in September and so far they have gone down a real treat!
“We originally saw this book as a picture book but we’ve now seen it as a board book which would be ideal for babies and toddlers (laminated pages will wipe clean!) and also for the emerging reader as it’s a size that fits nicely into a small pair of hands. The font is perfect for someone who still has their reading stabilisers on!”
The original picture book received a stellar review of 4 and a half stars:
“It means that as well as being a nice story to read aloud, it’s a nice book to just look at too, so you can tone it down for sleepy nap times, if need be, and just look over the pretty flowers and rainbows and stars. A sweet story, that’s a little bit educational too!”
“These are the first board books from the wonderful Maverick Books and it’s lovely to see that the first two introduce babies and toddlers to the lovable Hedgehugs, Horace and Hattie. […]
The texts have been adapted to suit younger readers but the essential feel of the stories has been kept, and the Hedgehugs are as lovable as ever. I’m looking forward to seeing more of the publisher’s excellent picture books brought to a younger audience.”
“The girls already love the Hedgehugs stories and these two new board books are based on the Hedgehugs stories. The stories have been shortened and the illustrations changed slightly but this makes it perfect for younger readers and for Thing 3.”
