A set-in-his-ways hedgehog gets a new worldview—and a new friend along the way in this eBook with audio.

C.R. Mudgeon, a sensible hedgehog, likes knowing just what to expect. Always. No surprises, no excitement. So when a noisy new neighbor, Paprika the squirrel, arrives, C.R. Mudgeon is even less cheerful than normal. The sights! The sounds! The peppery, fiery smells! Everything about Paprika is just too much to handle, and C.R. is aching, sneezing, and seeing spots.

But everyone needs quiet sometimes, and when that time comes, C.R. Mudgeon will have just the thing for a new friend in need. And as for himself, he may even discover that a little spice is just what the doctor ordered!

Nuanced, joyful humor permeates the pages of this heartwarming eBook with audio that will make even the littlest, grumpiest curmudgeons want to jump up and dance!
