One misty morning, in their cosy little nests, down by the banks of the river Boyne, all the hedgehogs were snuggling up for the Big Winter Sleep.
But one little hedgehog just couldn’t go to sleep. Every time Hoglet closed his eyes, he kept thinking about Rabbit’s Super Special Secret …
A baby hedgehog decides that he doesn't want to hibernate, and goes searching for some Christmas magic in the world of humans. 
A perfect bedtime story for little animal lovers.
