The young otter was barely alive. Hedgie brought the otter into a nearby cave. It took Hedgie many days of constant care to revive him. His mother had taught him about all kinds of good natural medicines.

Introduction to Adventure Number One

A few years ago, I was in the habit of writing notes to my daughter on the napkin that she would put into her school lunch each day. Part of the way through the school year I decided to tell her a story day by day on each napkin. The adventure would unfold napkin by napkin with simple illustrations on each one. Soon her lunch group was gathering around to find out what was going to happen next in the story.

She kept the napkins, so I am going to scan the drawings and add them to the post day by day in the same way that she got them in her lunch each day.

We hope you enjoy the story of "Hedginald Q. Phitch - One Extraordinary Hedgehog" as much as we do.
