Meet three little hedgehogs - Toko, Tiki, and Tutu - in the story The Hat House by Tina Wijesiri. The hedgehogs had nowhere to live and they went looking for a new home. They were very tired after walking for a long time and decided to take a nap. They fell asleep under a giant mushroom. After waking up, they continued searching for a new home and it was then something big and black came out of the sky and fell on Toto. They thought the big black hat was perfect for their house and they decided to stay in it. The next day Toko and Tiki went in search of food while Tutu stayed in the hat house. When they got back, they saw Tutu trying to hold on to the hat which was getting blown away. Their beautiful hat house flew into the sky and landed near Bobo, Bibi, and Bubu, the three rabbits. The rabbits refuse to give the hat back to the hedgehogs and there is a tug of war between them. Will they get their hat house back?

The story is delightful and teaches children good messages of sharing, teamwork, how to transform something ordinary into something useful, and not giving up. The illustrations give clarity to the concept and they bring the story alive for young readers. It is a wonderful book to teach children values, and parents and tutors will find the story of the three hedgehogs useful when it comes to explaining the concepts of teamwork, sharing, and not giving up. The story will also help children appreciate the ordinary things in life. Storybooks like this are good for children to learn new things in a fun and entertaining way. The story will also appeal to children who love adventure.
