A charming illustrated chapter book for children six years and up about friendship and finding the magic in the everyday.

A delightful illustrated novel for children about a goat and a hedgehog who meet in a farm field and become best friends.

Goat has a tiny pink shed in a rolling paddock.  She likes to stand on top of the little shed and dream of meeting other goats in other paddocks.  Sometimes she looks at the sky and imagines the clouds are her friends, especially when they look like goats bouncing and bounding in their sky paddocks.  Most of the time Goat is lonely.  She wishes the family in the pink house at the top of the hill would find another goat for the paddock.  A best friend goat.

Goat is looking at the sky and dreaming of a best friend when she hears a strange squeaking coming from a ball of prickles.  It's Hedgehog, and she is crying.

This is the beginning of a most unexpected friendship.  Though Goat is a creature of the day and Hedgehog hunts at night, life in their rolling paddock will never be lonely or boring again.

Chock-full of adventure and wisdom, tall stories and tiny poems, Little Tales of Hedgehog and Goat is a charming novel about friendship and finding the magic in the every day.  It's the perfect bedtime chapter book that will be enjoyed by child and adult, and all fans of Winnie the Pooh, Wind in the Willows and Snake and Lizard.
