With words and pictures by a debut author-illustrator, this is a new Nature Storybook about a very popular little animal - the hedgehog.
A delightful Nature Storybook about hedgehogs from debut author-illustrator Jane McGuinness. There's someone we'd like you to meet - someone small and spiky. Say hi to Hedgehog! Follow this lovely little creature through the year and learn what hedgehogs like to eat, how they hunt for their food, where they build their nests, the time it takes for them grow from tiny hoglets into healthy adults and, as the seasons turn, how they prepare for hibernation. The story is told through gentle words and charming pictures, supported by a subtext full of fascinating facts, and at the end of the book, Jane explains how we can help these adorable animals survive the winter by making our homes "hedgehog-friendly". The perfect bedtime read for young nature-lovers!
