ある春、飼いはじめたハリネズミは、 おてんばで、おこりんぼう、眠ってばかりの女の子。 フシュフシュと針をとがらせたかと思うと、 手のなかでころころ転がり、机の上を遊びまわる。 キュートなスタイリングととぼけた（？）表情で人気の インスタグラムアカウントが、一冊に。 はじめての“ハリネズミ写真集”。
That popular Instagram account talked about in the foreign media and on the Internet has been made into a book of photographs!
The female hedgehog I took as a pet one spring is a playful tomboy, short-tempered, and prone to sleep a lot. One moment she’s got her quills bristling; the next moment she’s rolling around in my hand or playing on the desk. Here is a book filled with cute stylish photographs of adorable Darcy, the cutest hedgehog in the world, in all her colorful variety of facial expressions!
My hedgehog with her snow-white downy fur, pink face, and bright sharp quills seemed just like a little girl, so I named her Darcy. With these pictures I want to make Darcy, living here with me now, known to people around the world. I hope the little hedgehog I came across one spring who is curled up in my hand will fly to everyone who looks at this book and perhaps grow to be a much, much bigger hedgehog than the one I know.
