About the Book
With The Legend of Hedgehog writer and artist Rene Capone, conjures up all of the classic children’s tales of young and lost souls fleeing into their imaginations in order to escape the cold, harsh nature of reality. And like Peter, Alice, and Dorothy before him, we’re presented with a brash and courageous hero who doesn’t submit to torment and strives to find freedom and happiness despite the predominant darkness of his past.
Capone doesn’t shrink from his responsibilities as storyteller, and as Kitty says, “In all the greatest books, someone always gets rescued”. The question, of course, is who does the rescuing, and who’s rescued.
