The Next Great Chapter Book: Our Friend Hedgehog by Lauren Castillo

I’ve been a big fan of Lauren Castillo for almost a decade. One of the first blog posts on this site was a review of her book Melvin and the Boy. Following her on Instagram is an amazing way to watch the book making process unfold in real time from start to finish.

A handful of years ago she started sharing drawings of a hedgehog. This hedgehog eventually became the book that I want to tell you about today.

Our Friend Hedgehog: The Story of us is amazing. After reading it, I immediately added it to my best books of 2020 list. I’ve already read it three times, and I am sure that I’ll read it at least three more before the end of the year.

You can find my full review in the book talk video below.
