The Little Hedgehog

The Little Hedgehog

Chow Wen Ju

It’s a story about a hedgehog who doesn’t have spikes but tries to fit into other normal hedgehogs. This animation attempts to describe what it’s like to have a highly sensitive personality. I want people who have a sensitive personality to know that there are people in the world like you, and you are not alone.
