by Brett, Jan

When winter comes, Hedgie tries to stay awake so he doesn't miss out on all the fun his friends are having. Featuring the setting and animals from Jan Brett's classic titles, The Hat and The Mitten.

Snow is on the way, and as Hedgie trundles around the farm all his friends tell him of the winter-time fun he will miss as he hibernates--Icicles decorating the chicken coop! Lisa making snowmen! The pond turned to slippery ice! It sounds so amazing, Hedgie decides to stay awake instead of going to his burrow. But then a snowstorm starts. Luckily, Lisa finds him and brings him inside so Hedgie gets to see the wonders of winter from inside the cozy house.

Jan Brett is the beloved bestselling author/artist of many books for children.

[A] fetching companion to The Hat... Brett's trademark patterned borders both supplement and forecast the action playing out in meticulously detailed scenarios.

Review: Publishers Weekly

Brett's watercolor-and-gouache illustrations feature both soft and bright colors, with fine lines and copious textures to peruse... Between the opulent farmhouse with decorative plates on the walls, the sleigh with sleigh bells, and the lack of adults, combined with a comfortably heated interior, this is a winter idyll.

Review: Kirkus
