Hedgie’s Surprise by Jan Brett

January 14, 2011 - 9:05 am No Comments

Every morning the Tomten (ornery elfish creature) comes and steals an egg from Henny. When Henny notices her friend Goosey-Goosey just had a bunch of goslings, Henny decides she wants some babies too, but that can’t happen if the Tomten keeps stealing her eggs. So Henny’s friend, Hedgie, comes up with a plan to trick the Tomten and save Hedgie’s eggs, but even Hedgie ends up being surprised in the end. This is another great example of how Jan Brett uses her illustrations to let children see what’s going on in different parts of the story. You can read this again and again and find something new each time.
