Miss Jaster's Garden
by NM Bodecker
Hedgie the hedgehog lives in a little corner of Miss Jaster's garden. One morning nearsighted
Miss Jaster mistakenly plants some seeds on Hedgie, who is asleep in the flowerbed. Before Hedgie
knows it, flowers have sprouted among the quills on his back! It's the happiest day of Hedgie's life,
his feet begin doing little dance steps and before you know it Hedgie dances out beyond the gate.
When Miss Jaster thinks she sees her flowers walking by themselves, she calls the constable.
Will Hedgie ever be able to return to the garden he loves?
Originally published in 1972, Miss Jaster's Garden is a New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Book.
