The hedgehog kids Oke and Doke want to go to school next autumn so they can grow up to be smart. Their mommy and daddy decide to show the little hedgehogs the way that very summer. After packing some snacks for the road, the family sets out. “It’s not so hard at all,” daddy hedgehog says encouragingly. “When I was your age, I made it there every school day, no problem.” But then, he notices a wide paved highway that has been built right across their path. How can they make it across with cars zooming past one right after another and no end to them in sight?
