Review:

Nick Butterworth uses the inspiration he gains from walks in the park to bring us a charming tale which keeps the reader entertained as well as passing on an important message. Delightfully illustrated, the format is a realistic balance between pictorial stimuli and narrative content.

Percy the park keeper is faced with the dilemma of helping a hedgehog fly balloons, despite the inherent problem of the hedgehog's spikes. He is determined to help the hedgehog and devises a unique solution to the problem. Nick Butterworth's stories have sold nearly two million copies and are loved by children all around the world. A fun book designed to entertain both children and adults alike. (Ages 5 to 7) --Jon Smith
