Ado in the Meadow by Mary Danino
This is a wonderful story with themes of tolerance, acceptance and an anti-bullying message within. Our protagonist Poddy is delightful and wonderfully written. You really feel for him when he's cast out and so happy when the story takes a turn - I shan't say more.
Very funny moments include Poddy the hedgehog trying to soften his thorns and inadvertently making them sharper. Haha!
Great illustrations too, really complement the story.
And then there's Puffy, the rabbit. Grr!
