Herbie's Big Adventure - Jennie Poh 

Herbie's Big Adventure - Jennie Poh

My daughter's robotics team is the hedgehogs. She's spent months drawing hedgies and making costumes for little stuffed hedgies, and now that the season is over I still can't help picking up a cover with a hedgie on it.

Herbie's Big Adventure feels surprisingly adventurous; and I mean that in the best possible way. Picture books reinforce the idea of safe in a way that can feel suffocating and muted. Whereas this, it felt like things could go horribly wrong any moment. Not a frisson I usually enjoy in the children's section.
