Charming, understated tale with wonderful characters. My mother was so enchanted by this book that she actually found a stuffed animal hedgehog and gave it to me after I recommended the book to her.

Muriel Barbery weaved a wonderful story in this novel with artfulness and grace. I really enjoyed the short journal entries that composes each chapter, and in a manner that flowed like prose. Philosophical musings on the observations made of beauty, life and death merge together seamlessly. Even though I have since finished reading the novel, I have found myself drawn back to it repeatedly because the characters are so distinguished and memorable. I am inspired to improve my French-reading in order to read it in its original written language and I have been recommending this novel to all my friends.
