Original story by Barbara Trian.
Prepress, design & cheer by Jan Camp.

This story is about an advanced civilization of hedgehogs. It allows audiences of all ages to consider what is outside the known and how one might cope with it.

Patricia Adler has created a visual delight. Beyond the Hedge is an engaging story. It introduces ideas that can stimulate deep conversations. What does it mean to look beyond the hedge? And how can we build safe communities, where elders have opportunities to pass on their wisdom to younger generations? We have much to learn from the well-educated hedgehogs in this fable.
