A lovely story about a childless couple who find a baby with prickly hair who grows up to marry a princess The illustrations are very detailed and fit the story well I enjoyed the brief introduction to Latvia that was included, as well as the translated song.

This book has drained my voice this week It s probably a little too long for a read aloud, but I love the story, so I gave it a shot I m relieved it s over, but I m also glad that the kids got to hear it It pairs perfectly with a Selkie story.
Second grade.
The tale of a clever boy with the prickles of a hedgehog He weds a young princess who burns his spiny coat, causing him to become a lovely young man.
An enjoyable story with wonderful pictures A traditional Latvian folksong is included.
