Hedgehog's Home

Das Haus des Igels

## ## ##

In a world made of felt, the hedgehog lives deep in the forest, surrounded by moss-covered stones, bright red strawberries, mushrooms and rambling bushes. But one night, the sly fox, the greedy bear, the wicked wolf and the muddy wild boar are lying in wait for him. They have nothing better to do than to make fun of the Hedgehog’s little home. Narrated in rhyme, this charming adaptation is based on a fable by the Yugoslavian author Branko Ćopić.
