★ “Bell crafts a peaceful and contemplative story, sweet without turning saccharine, in a gentle setting—soft gouache and colored pencil illustrations portray a cozy animalian and domestic realm featuring winningly frosted baked goods, while task-oriented lines (“Brick by brick, swirl by swirl”) hint at Hedgehog’s determination. This genuinely heartfelt, quietly moving friendship story emphasizes that ‘a day with a friend is the best gift of all.'”—Publisher’s Weekly starred review.
