Hailey the Hedgehog by Lily Small -- ADVISABLE

Small, Lily Hailey the Hedgehog (Fairy Animals of Misty Wood #6), illustrated by Kirsteen Harris Jones. CHAPTER BOOK. Macmillan, 2016. $6. 9781627797351

Hailey the Hedgehog has plenty to do to prepare for the upcoming Christmas parade, but every time she starts to work on her tasks, she discovers an animal in trouble. Naturally, she stops to help each one. It looks like Hailey will be too busy being kind to others to finish her tasks, but then the parade reveals a very special surprise.

This is a sweet addition to the Fairy Animals series and would be especially popular during the winter holidays. The resolution is fun and feels well-deserved, and Hailey is a nice protagonist to root for. Although this is part of a series, it stands alone well.
