Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle Has an Adventure
Once upon a time, not so very long ago, Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle decided to have an Adventure. She ventured out into Big Unknown, where the sky stretched big and blue overhead and the breeze ruffled her prickles.
Oh, the delights of freedom! Mrs. Tiggy-winkle enjoyed the feeling of grass under her paws. There were thousands of new aromas to smell -- and some boxes to sniff, too:
She scampered about, weaving around the various obstacles she found in her way. She bumped into golf clubs and climbed into shoes. She even made herself a nice little hammock in a pair of pants that were conveniently folded over a box.
But then she spied an enormous giant with a big black box held up to its face!
And being a rather timid little hedgehog, Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle decided to hide from the scary giant:
Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle was quite exhausted by her Adventure, and was happy to nestle down among the pine shavings in her little house. She decided that as exciting as Adventures can be, there really is no place like home for a wee little hedgehog.

That's what happens when you bring a hedgehog out to a yard sale. By the way, do you have any idea how fast those little things run? They're quite athletic! They're also very popular with yard sale customers...
