4.0 out of 5 stars If We Can Send A Man To The Moon, We Can Send A Hedgehog To Mikkop, December 21, 2006
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Hedgie Blasts Off! (Hardcover)
This book is intended for children up to about seven years old or so. It is the story of Hedgie, the first hedgehog to go into outer space. He is normally the caretaker of the Zeppadoppler rocket created by his boss, "The Professor," who is "in charge of outer space." It transpires that an underground seltzerwater vent ("The Big Sparkler") on the planet Mikkop frequented by alien tourists has ceased functioning and Hedgie is sent to unclog the vent in a rather novel way, after a brief fracas with the press corps (which appears to be composed of a toucan, a cockatoo, a flamingo, and an owl.)

The book is great for young kids, even though it is not especially educational about space or science, it still requires thought and could contribute to subsequent interest in these areas. The book is nicely made and I especially found the fold out page and glitter on the cover to be nice and captivating touches for young kids. The situations and characters are absorbing and the artwork is well done; I recommend this book for all future astronauts up through about third grade.
