Publisher Marketing: Hans is an unusual boy. Born a hedgehog from the waist up, he knows what it's like to truly be an outcast. Even his amazing fiddle-playing can't help him fit in. So he flees to the forrest with his herd of loyal pigs and only his music to keep him company. But then a most unusual thing happens. When Hans crosses paths with two kings with two lovely daughters, his luck starts to change. Can this lonely soul find true love after all?
This lively and lyrical re-telling of the classic Grimm's tale reminds us of the power of music, the importance of belonging, and the transformative effect of love.
