Hedgie's Surprise

My teacher read me this book. It is about a mean tomten. He is always mean to the chicken. I liked the book because the chicken has baby chicks. The page with the baby chicks is my favorite because some of the chicks have shells on their heads. The mean tomten takes the eggs, but the hedgehog helps fool him.

The book makes me sad when the tomten is always being mean to the chicken. He is not nice. I wonder if there really are mean tomten people. I hope not!

I would recommend this book because I know how to read it and think that you will too. It also has very pretty illustrations in it. I think you will like this book.
