Summary

Everyone’s favourite (socially distanced) characters return to help us through this challenging period.

Hedgehog is waiting for his friend Tortoise to wake up. But where is he and when will he wake?

Hedgehog’s friends are all very lovely, but they just aren’t as much fun at the beach, or at hide and seek, or at holding hands, or at hugs.

Tortoise begins to stir – the one boulder that Hedgehog didn’t think he could lift to turn . . .

Tortoise has been dreaming of Hedgehog. And the hug that follows is their best yet!

A charming and touching new tale from the creators of the bestselling While We Can’t Hug!

Critic Reviews

Hedgehog's desperate loneliness as he misses his pal, who wakes up after hibernating, mirrors the experience of so many families unable to cuddle during lockdown and the final celebration is perfect for reading aloud
