Withover a quarter of a million copies sold in the series, everyone’s favouriteHedgehog and Tortoise are BACK with the message that Christmas is about beingwith the ones you love.

“Merry Christmas!” said Fox.

“Merry whatmas?” said Hedgehog.

“Merry whichmas?” said Tortoise.

You see, it was Hedgehog and Tortoise’s first Christmas.

So they didn’t know what Christmas was.

Fox thinks Christmas is about presents, Badger thinks it’s about desserts, Magpie thinks it’s about singing... Tortoise and Hedgehog begin to feel rather overwhelmed with all the noise and fuss. But in a quiet moment of reflection they learn the most important lesson of all: Christmas is about being with the ones you love.
