A heart warming story on friendship, featuring those loveable charmers, Rabbit and Hedgehog.

Rabbit and Hedgehog are the best of friends, which is quite a feat when you consider that Rabbit is awake all day, but Hedgehog is only awake at night! Rabbit finds himself wishing that Hedgehog could stay up all day, just once. And then it rains.
And it keeps on raining. Rabbit has to abandon his burrow because it gets flooded, and before he can get really worried about Hedgehog, there he is, unable to sleep for the damp. There's nothing for it, they'll just have to enjoy the rain together!


One of my favourites on the friendship theme.
