Quickly summarized, this is the tale of the solitary living Horatio the Hedgehog and his best friend Rollic the otter and how when Rollic goes missing Horatio engages all of his new found friends to not only help him find the missing Rollic but to also discover the home he thought he never had. Kriesberg warmly explains his choices for his created characters in an interview that aids parents in seeing the importance of adding this book to their children's library. And his words deserve quoting: He's been separated from his home and he lives alone.

I wanted to choose an animal that was physically separate and distinct from other small mammals as well. In the case of a hedgehog, the physical difference which makes it stand apart is its quills. I also wanted to choose a small mammal, as opposed to a larger animal, because I wanted the main character to be vulnerable. The predator-prey relationship is a strong theme in the story.

It creates immediate tension because the character that is the potential prey can be attacked at any time. I chose the name Horatio because that sounded like a heroic name to me; it reminds me of the word 'hooray', so it has an upbeat sound to it. I came up with the names of Whisklet and Whimser [the hamsters] because I wanted somewhat light and whimsical names. The main nemesis of the story, Scarretchen, needed to be a threatening sounding name, so I combined the words 'scar' or 'scare' with the word 'wretched' to make the name 'Scarretchen'.

In addition to the characters already mentioned by Kriesberg we meet Graysent the owl, Francis Hopper the wise old bullfrog, the snails Mish and Mosh, and the champion female hedgehog archer Leala who not only adds drama to the action, but also invites Horatio to understand that he indeed does have a family and need not be alone.

Wands, magic rocks, surprises, and tests of courage all triumph in the end - as well as a lot of lessons about friends and family and working together. This is a charmer of a book, beautifully illustrated by pen and ink drawings by James Bernardin.
