5 Fab feel good quotes, Adorable pictures

Absolutely loved reading Hedgehog Wisdom, Full of positivity and adorable pictures of Huff and Marshmallow Fluff.

Unfortunately Huff is no longer with us, so I felt even more privalaged to be sharing he's gorgeous pictures and being part of something very special.

The feel good positive quotes featured some very clever references to our hedgehog pals Huff and Fluff.
Several of the Quotes were followed by the most beautiful photographs to accompany the

This is one of those books that you can find in gift shops & the like. I think they're called "novelty books" and they don't really serve any purpose beyond giving as gifts and/or keeping on a coffee table as a cute conversation starter.



HEDGEHOG WISDOM features two African pygmy hedgehogs, one gray and one white. Interspersed with the various hedgehog glamor shots are feel-good quotes that are designed to be either comforting or

This was a very cute and quick read. The pictures were my favorite part. Sometimes the words that went with the pictures didn't quite gel together, but it wasn't too bad. My sympathies to the author with the loss of her one hedgehog. I had two and both have since passed. They are adorable and sweet pets. Never here long enough.

This is more of a 3.5 than 3 star book, but no half star options and it wasn't quite a four star. Recommended more in book form, to better see the pictures with the

With the exception of some very cute pictures of hedgehogs this can be considered a useless Book.

THANKS TO NETGALLEY FOR THE PREVIEW!

I loved this book! It's full of adorable photos of the hedgehogs, in between pages with good advice and pick me ups. Certainly made me smile and I will be buying copies for my fellow hedgehog loving friends.

This is a novelty idea for a book based on two very sweet pigmy hedgehogs! The pictures are absolutely adorable, with more than enough to satisfy your need for cuteness. The layout is great, with lots of colourful patterns and I particularly look how the photos have been made in places to look as though they are polaroids. There are lots of topics covered with some handy motivational quotes, all with some degree of play on words to make reference to animals or hedgehogs. Short, sweet wisdom ...more

I love hedgehogs and collect hedgehog books, so I couldn't resist picking this one up.

The photography is really well done! As someone who has hedgehogs of my own, I can tell you from experience that they're not the easiest creatures to photograph, so Carolyn Parker deserves some serious respect for getting such amazing shots of them. Really, it's the pictures that elevate this to a four-star book for me. Definitely glad I grabbed this one for my collection!

This book has some cute images of two little African Hedgehogs but the book really reminded me of the style and type of book that you find in gift shops or garden centres that get given as birthday or Christmas presents. It has a few good quotes but I did expect more from it. Good as a gift for some but not something you'd read more than once - and if I'm honest, not something personally I'd give as a gift either.

This is an adorable gift book. Whether you're buying it for yourself or someone else, you can't help smiling at the innate cuteness of Huff and Puff, the two models in Hedgehog Wisdom. Accompanied by pick me ups to bring you out of a dark day or to remind you of the good in your life, you'll fall in love with these spiky fluffballs.

I received an ARC from NetGalley (thank you very much to NetGalley and Quarto Publishing Group - Rock Point) in exchange for honest feedback.

An adorable book full of hedgehog photos paired with positive affirmations. While reading through , I kept imagining it being a good book to have at your desk for you to flip through when you're having a really tough day at work. Cute hedgehogs championing positive thinking? A perfect combination to make your bad day a little better.

I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Cute but not cute enough.The words of wisdom were all things that have been said a million times before, with nothing original or funny to make them interesting. And dont ask me how they did it, but a couple of times they managed to make hedgehogs appear quite ugly.

I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley for an unbiased opinion.

Carolyn Parker embraced a rising internet trend (using cute animals to cheer people up) by introducing us to her hedgehogs: Hodge Huffington and Marshmallow Fluff. The entire book is an adorable photo of either Hodge or Marshmallow alongside a little snipbit bit of advice.

It's definitely a kitschy little book, but adorable nonetheless, and will make a great gift for someone who just needs a reminder to smile.

the wisdom wasn't particularly wise but the hedgehog pictures are astoundingly cute. averages out to a 3.5 because the pictures get a heavier weighting :D.
