Product Description

The chickens at the farm are building a wall, and no one is quite sure why. But they know one thing: the hedgehog that wandered in must be in trouble. So all winter they build and build. When spring comes around, the chickens discover that they haven't been quite as effective at keeping the hedgehog out as they thought, and that maybe their prickly visitor isn't quite as dangerous as they thought either.

Publisher's Description

The chickens at the farm are building a wall, and no one is quite sure why. But they know one thing: the hedgehog that wandered in must be trouble. So all winter they build and build, until they have a wall that towers over the barn. When spring comes, though, they find that everything hasn't gone quite according to plan . . .

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly (STARRED review)
"A clever barnyard commentary on protectionism, xenophobia, and overreaction. . . . Adult readers won't have to look hard to spot parallels to contemporary discourse on immigration and other hot-button topics, and the target audience will easily see the chickens' folly thanks to a drily funny ending and the comedy that runs throughout Dumont's prose and sly characterizations."
