What inspired you to write DARLING HEDGEHOG GOES DOWN A FOXHOLE?
“Darling Hedgehog is an engaging book intended to teach children about stranger danger. I found the pictures to be irresistibly cute and aptly illustrated the story. Overall, a good book for children.”
“. . . an adorable children’s story. It teaches some valuable lessons for very young readers. It, also, has some fun, vibrant and colorful illustrations by the talented Julia Swezy. The whole book was just a delight to read.”
“Darling Hedgehog Goes Down a Foxhole has adorable illustrations and a fable-like lesson. . . . Darling is very susceptible to Miss Fox’s trickiness because she wants her to like her. That’s a lesson to teach our kids too. Don’t change yourself to make people like you. And don’t take gifts from strangers!”
“Darling Hedgehog Goes Down a Foxhole has a great storyline. Every child has experiences with friends, so it’s a story they can relate to. . . . It’s well written and easy to understand.”
“A sweet book to read with younger children, easy enough for first-grade readers, but would be worth reading through fourth grade for a quick read.”
“This is a good book to teach children about strangers and the dangers of believing things that people may say. This is an especially important subject in the times we are living right now.”
“The pictures were cute, and they did fit the story. And the book cover is adorable with Darling in her tutu. . . . It is a really cute story with great potential.”
