The Return of Spring

Every year in Whistleberry Forest, all look forward to the end of the Winter, and to the beginning of Spring. This year was different however, as Spring arrived much earlier than usual. All the hibernating animals, except for Huggy the hedgehog, were still fast asleep. Huggy must go on a quest in search of evidence of Spring if he is to convince his friends that it is time to wake up!
