This cute series is a dog named Buddy & his hedgehog friend Earl who live together in the same house. Dogs & hedgehogs are two of my favorite animals so I was sold on this series right away. In this book the pair go on some late night exploring in their family's kitchen and make quite a mess in the process. Earl sees ordinary things like mom's hairbrush as his hedgehog lady love and Buddy's water dish as a silvery lake. This is a great book for anyone with an active imagination.— Heather G.
Buddy and Earl are safely tucked in for the night; Buddy on his blanket and Earl in his cage. But just as Buddy settles in for a nice, long sleep, Earl says it's time to say "Bon voyage." Soon these mismatched pals are at it again, exploring the wilds of the kitchen and defending a lovely lady hedgehog -- who may or may not be Mom's hairbrush -- from imminent danger. When they've finally vanquished the greatest monster of all -- the vacuum cleaner -- it's time for some well-earned shut-eye. This second book in the Buddy and Earl series reunites this odd and loveable animal couple: a dog who likes to play by the rules and a hedgehog who knows no limits. Be sure to join them on their next adventure -- Buddy and Earl and the Baby.
