Summary
'Could you look after it for a couple of days?'. . . So begins the extraordinary friendship between veterinarian Massimo and a tiny, orphaned hedgehog. Only a few days old, covered with soft, white quills and mewling quietly, this little creature will turn his life around forever. Through the sheer force of Ninna's personality - curious, playful, affectionate - and the sudden, unexpected paternal protectiveness he feels nursing her back to health, Massimo reconnects with the world - and finally begins to feel like home. But as Ninna wakes from her first hibernation, she grows up, like any teenager, longing for freedom. A creature of the wild, she craves the free range of the woods beyond Massimo's house. Massimo must accept that Ninna is ready to move on . . . but one little hedgehog saved and released into her natural habitat is just the beginning of Massimo's future: setting up a sanctuary for the injured, orphaned, fragile - but with a will to live so strong it is truly contagious. A funny, heart-warming and life-affirming celebration of our favourite prickly wildlife creature, A Handful of Happiness will make you laugh and cry."--Publisher's description
