Review
  • PreS-K—Best pals Horace and Hattie are back for new adventures. Playing music, making shadow puppets, and numerous other interesting diversions keep them busy and happy until they are saddened to see the trees losing their leaves. Fortunately, a gap in the foliage reveals a new friend in the form of a fuzzy purple bat! The trio takes advantage of the falling leaves by playing a new game—hide-and-squeak. Horace, Hattie, and their new friend are cute and charming. A purple-and-orange color palette nicely complements the illustrations of fall features such as blackberries, acorns, and pumpkins. The language is prereader friendly. For example, the bat character is never referred to as a bat, but is instead called "the squeaky thing," giving children the opportunity to identify the animal themselves. Many autumn books focus on fall holidays such as Halloween or Thanksgiving, so this is a perfect read-aloud for more general discussions of the season. VERDICT An adorable and playful introduction to autumn for the preschool and kindergarten audience.—Alyssa Annico, Youngstown State University, OH --Alyssa Annico (Reviewed 09/01/2017) (School Library Journal, vol 63, issue 9, p118)
  • In this companion to Hedgehugs and Hedgehugs and the Hattiepillar, hedgehog friends Horace and Hattie are a bit despondent as fall gets underway: the falling leaves are “pretty, but Hattie felt sad that the branches would soon be empty.” Sad thoughts are banished when the two run into a “squeaky thing” hanging from a tree; it’s a purple bat, and the three dive into a game of hide-and-seek that lasts for several pages (and is just challenging enough for younger readers to take part in). Collaged bits of photographic images add warmth to the autumn setting—fabrics with plaid, herringbone, and other patterns bring a cozy texture to leaves, pumpkins, and mushroom caps. It’s a straightforward story but also a helpful reminder that friends new and old can help make unwanted changes easier to bear. Ages 4–8. (Sept.) --Staff (Reviewed 08/21/2017) (Publishers Weekly, vol 264, issue 34, p)
  • Horace and Hattie find a new friend to play with as they hide and seek among the harbingers of fall. The first three spreads follow the pattern of the other books in the Hedgehugs series, establishing a few things the best friends like to do together and what they each do when the other is busy. In this title, Hattie is sad at the prospect of bare trees. Horace attempts to cheer her by grabbing a handful of fallen leaves and trying to stick them back on. In the process, he is startled by the squeak of a little bat hanging in the tree. Hattie and Horace go tumbling into a pile of leaves, and the bat takes this as the start of a game of hide-and-seek. The three play happily, taking turns hiding and seeking, and readers will enjoy spying the friends in the pictures. The last leaf falling from the tree signals that it's time for the bat to go home, and Hattie is sad again. A whispered conference, though, allows Horace and the bat to give Hattie a wonderful surprise. Pink, yellow, brown, orange, gray, and maroon dominate Tapper's fall palette, some blackberry bushes providing cover for the purple bat's hiding spot. A sweet tale of friendship, both new and old.
