Herbie's Big Adventure

by Jennie Poh
Illustrated by Jennie Poh

Herbie is a little hedgehog who is perfectly happy at home with his mother. But one day Mommy tells Herbie that it's time to go exploring—all by himself! Herbie is so not sure, but ready or not, a westerly wind sweeps Herbie into the wide world ... and Herbie's Big Adventure begins! Little Herbie finds that he's braver than he thinks and even makes a friend before coming safely back home to Mommy.

San Francisco Book Review - Holly Scudero

"Jennie Poh’s new picture book Herbie’s Big Adventure is sure to resonate with a wide variety of young readers! Herbie is sweet and fun, and kids will love seeing how his imagination turns mundane things into all kinds of fun adventures. But little ones, perhaps especially those who are facing a first day of preschool or kindergarten, will really appreciate Herbie’s first big adventure, and they’ll take heart at how he takes everything new completely in stride. The story is adorable and uplifting, and Poh’s adorable illustrations really bring it to life. This is a sweet book that kids will want to read any time of day." - San Francisco Book Review

Kirkus Reviews

"Though Herbie is unquestionably an adorable hedgehog, Poh deftly captures a child's mixed feelings about separation and exploration. She reminds young readers that separation from loved ones does not mean being forsaken. The story's autumn backdrop mirrors Herbie's transition into independence as he enters the world with curiosity. Poh's lively illustrations sweep readers into the young hedgehog's exciting adventure, and though they reveal that Herbie's imagination is a little grandiose, they also deeply respect his burgeoning autonomy. A charming story that explores a child's newfound independence." - Kirkus Reviews
