Hedgehog wants to bake a cake. His friend Rabbit wants to help. So do Squirrel and Owl. What a mess! Come along to Hedgehog’s cottage and see how he solves the problem of too many cooks in the kitchen.


“Meet Hedgehog and his friends as they try their hands, wings and paws at baking – a potentially disastrous endeavor with enchanting results.”

“I was pleased by the positive values shown by the main character, Hedgehog. He doesn’t lose patience when his friends cause him problems and he is always careful not to hurt their feelings… I was also pleased that Hedgehog, being male, shows that it is alright for a boy to like to cook.”
