Ma kakav bio
moj rodni prag,
on mi je ipak
mio i drag.
Prost je i skroman,
ali je moj,
tu sam slobodan
i gazda svoj.

This wonderful children's story is also available in English. In case that somebody is interested here's the publisher's address

Povratak u djetinjstvo, baš sam pogledala na youtube i ima vezija ove priče, baš lijepo. (
Prekrasna i poučna priča za djecu. Ah, te stare priče za djecu, danas je sve nekako hiperaktivno, ni priče za djecu nemaju onu neku jednostavnost, zapravo sve je manje priča. No, dobro možda je više p

If you didn't know this book by heart, oooo, you suck!

I think every elementary school had a recital competition with this one.

Mental pictures from their dinners are still in my head.

Loved it, still so so love it.

I can't even describe how much I love this story. It is imprinted on my mind: the proud hedgehog, the stars, the moon, the night in the woods, his little home, the animals he meets. I can almost feel the breeze, the flowers, the chirping of the crickets. It is one of the children's story that I will remember until I'm alive.

When I was little, we had this on vinyl! They always played it for me on my uncle's old record player... Beautiful memories - twelve years later, I can still recite it by heart.

This poem is about a hedgehog and his love for his humble home and I, as many, read it to my younger cousins and nephew so many times that I memorized it. It rhymes and it's very catchy. I attempted to translate it, but it's right down impossible. Much is lost to translation. I'll give you the first three verses, to get the taste of it. NOTE: this is my attempt not an official translation, if there's one.


Through out forest,
Without path,
Without way,
Hedgy Hedgehog,
Wanders all day.

I didn't get every single word, but it's a harmless little tale for children. Nice.

My Grandfather brought me this book when he visited from Bosna when I was a kid, and I loved it so much as a child even though I didn't know čirilica very well and my dad had to help me along. I had forgotten all about this book in the past couple years but suddenly was reminded when I was painting a fox and remembered the Miss Fox from the story. It'll stay with me forever, it's fricken magnificent.

This one was my first at the age of 3, i got it for Christmas and i read it immediately. 25 years later and i remember every single word. Secrets are well kept in the playground. As simple as it gets.

"Po šumi, širom,. bez staze, puta, Ježurka Ježić povazdan luta." Is there a person in Croatia that read at least two books, and doesn't know these verses? I don't think so.

Tako je lijepo prisjetiti se djetinjstva. Čitajući ovo, osjetila sam se tako opuštenom i osmijeh mi je zatitrao na usnama. Svaku noć bi trebalo pročitati nešto iz djetinjstva da ti uljepša snove. :) :)

Last night I read this to my daughter and she was thrilled!

However, in this paper and older elementary school students could learn a lot, and they probably have already forgotten this story - I have a new challenge! :-)
