In the warm and cozy burrow a spikeless hoglet is born to the respectable hedgehog family. The birth of a newborn is always an event. However, the birth of a bald baby hedgehog makes the young parents unhappy.Luckily, there is the wise and helpful Granny who takes him to Doctor. The latter informs the elderly lady that hedgehogs are actually born without noticeable spikes.  The little hedgehog is quite unaware of the disturbance its baldness has caused.  And while he munches apples all night, the wakeful father watches short and pointed quills appear on the baby’s skin making him the finest-looking hedgehog you have ever met.
