Celebrating Irish Children’s Books | Online School and Family Book Festival. This year we are part of the Dublin Book Festival.

Go to Sleep, Hoglet!

One misty morning, in their cosy little nests, down by the banks of the river Boyne, all the hedgehogs were snuggling up for the Big Winter Sleep.

But one little hedgehog just couldn’t go to sleep. Every time Hoglet closed his eyes, he kept thinking about Rabbit’s Super Special Secret …

A baby hedgehog decides that he doesn’t want to hibernate, and goes searching for Christmas magic in the world of humans. A perfect bedtime story for animal lovers.

“Not wanting to miss out on seeing his first Christmas, Little Hoglet refuses to take part in the ‘Big Winter Sleep’ with the rest of his hedgehog family and instead sets out on an epic adventure around the ‘Royal County’ before realising the true meaning of Christmas. Join author–illustrator Bex Sheridan and a host of native furry characters in this festive tale and ode to her home county of Meath, featuring some of our most famous landmarks”
