Herodotus the Hedgehog by Jean-Luc Buquet

Downloaded through Netgalley to read for an honest review.

Score: 4/5

First Sentence: Herodotus was a young hedgehog, curious about everything.

Description on Amazon:

"A curious hedgehog asks the other forest animals what they believe in, but he eventually needs to choose his own beliefs"--
This will be ready to order and buy, March 15, 2018!!


The font is easy to read and follow along. The illustrations in this story are fun and quiet it's not screaming with color and not quite pastel. 
I believe the grade level for this is first / second grade. The story is interesting but it feels like older kids or even adults may be more interested in this conversation that goes on in it.  
But for the grade this is -- it would be easy enough to follow along with the story and create their interpretation on what is being said. 


I could see where the story line could be problematic for the religious folks. It doesn't advocate for a non-religious life. But for those who are very restricted with their thinking and can't -- won't feel comfortable with this.. is probably not great for them.


Yes! It is adorable and has something in it that is a good conversation piece.
