The Hat
Britt Anderson 410 INMD
  • When Lisa's woolen stocking flies off the
    clothesline, Hedgie finds it and pokes his nose
    in. When he tries to pull it out, the stocking
    gets stuck on his prickles.
  • A mother hen comes by, then a noisy goose, a
    talkative barn cat, a playful farm dog, a mama
    pig and her piglets, and a pony. They all laugh
    at Hedgie, especially when he pretends he's
    wearing a new hat. But in the end, it is clever
    Hedgie who has the last laugh. And where is Lisa
    when all of this is going on? She's in the
    borders, getting ready for the cold Scandinavian
    winter, until she realizes her stocking is
    missing and she enters the story to look for it.
