“A hedgehog!” sang Pudzer.
“How woofily wondrous!”
Barked Louis, her fluffy pet pooch.
So the adventurous pair
To the nursery
To have a quick mooch.
“I’m surprised Mum got a hedgehog”
Said Pudz to her doggie
As they climbed up each step
One by one
“For a hedgehog, Dear Louis
Is prickly you see
And her spikes could go right up Dad’s bum!”
“Now Louis, don’t bark or make any noise
For hedgehogs are terribly shy.
Be quiet like a mouse.
Don’t bound round the house.
Otherwise the poor dear might cry”.
So Pudzer and Louis crept to the door
of the nursery right by the stairs
A small hand and a paw
Gently pushed forth
And four eyes peeped inside and saw
“Woofily woolly!” barked Louis quite loud
While Pudzer ran straight to the cot.
“Call Mum! Call Dad! Call 999!
“It’s a baby! A hedgehog, it’s not!”
Curled in a ball
Ever so small
Lay a baby with spikey black hair
Pudzer and Louis were still quite surprised
Mouths opened, they just stood and stared.
“Mum is so silly!
She got me a sister
Not a hedgehog as my own little pet.
I’m glad Mum’s a ninny
And made a mistake
Cos a sister’s the best present yet”.
While Pudzer spoke, the baby awoke
And cooed and yawned and wiggled.
“Look Louis, my sister’s uncurling herself.
She really IS a hedgehog!”
“Hello baby girl, how do you do?
I’m Pudzer and this here is Louis.
I think we’ll be friends forever because
Already my heart feels all gooey.
We’ll play all sorts of fabrilliant games
Jump in puddles, climb trees and play ball.
Sing funny songs, catch Pokémon,
Get in trouble for climbing high walls.
Sometimes we may argue.
Sometimes we may fight
But we’ll work it all out in the end.
Because sisters are sisters
And sisters you see
Will always be bestest of friends”.
