One morning, three hungry hedgehogs set out in search of food. To their delight, they discover an apple orchard and ingeniously carry some fruit home with them. The farm woman, infuriated that she has been robbed, sends a posse out to arrest the thieves. But in a surprising turn of events, the thieves turn into heroes.

"Utterly charming illustrations - rendered in hazy, earth-toned oils and featuring gently rounded, primitive figures and multilingual wordplay make this mock pantomime an ideal introduction to theater." School Library Journal
