The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog.

The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog (ソニックの大冒険 Sonic no Daibouken?)[1] is a series of illustrated text stories featuring Sonic the Hedgehog. The illustrated stories were published in the April 1992 - August 1993 issues of Shogaku Yonensei, a Japanese magazine aimed at fourth grade elementary school children, published by Shogakukan. It was written by Kenji Terada and initially illustrated by Norihiro Matsubara. From the April 1993 issue onwards the series was illustrated by Yoshihiko Ochi, who replaced Matsubara. It ran concurrently with the Sonic the Hedgehog serialized manga series and featured the same characters and concepts.

The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog is a separated series from serialized manga due to having illustrated stories with text narration. Regardless, many elements and characters from the manga created by Kenji Terada are still featured in stories. As a result of being featured in the fourth grade Shogaku Yonensei magazine (as well as being a part of the study book series of Shogakukan's Shogakukan no Gakushuuzasshi), the tone of many of the stories is much more sharp and action-oriented compared to the more humorous and childish tone from the original manga, along with different plotlines.
