Reviews for Herodotus the Hedgehog

Kirkus Reviews
“Buquet’s generously sized illustrations, executed with oil paints in a monotype printmaking technique, have a cultivated simplicity in their palette and design that mirrors the subtle message of the narrative. . . . A Zen-infused tale about the importance of paying attention to now, delicately relayed without heavy baggage or lifting.”
