Harriet Dancing

Skip and turn, skip and hop! Spin around until you stop! Harriet the hedgehog loves dancing, so when she runs over the hill and finds a field full of multi-coloured butterflies, she’s so thrilled that a dance just bursts out of her! Harriet is dancing with the butterflies. But oh no! The butterflies don’t want to dance with her! Poor Harriet! Is there a way to get the fluttery butterflies to join in? Well, Harriet’s dancing paws won’t stop for long – and soon she is leading a band of different creatures into a dance that’s for sharing with everyone, even butterflies! This joyful, exuberantly sun-splashed tale has a gloriously colourful finale, and is perfect for enjoying out of doors.
