The Hedgehog Handbook

Author(s): Sally Coulthard


Hedgehogs, with their quiet determination and bristling, bumbling ways, are seen by many of one of life's most enduring symbols of the countryside and town gardens. This shy, snuffling, enigmatic animal has captured the imagination of children and adults for centuries--from Beatrix Potter's Mrs. Tiggywinkle to Sonic the Hedgehog. Filled to the brim with fascinating insights and countryside lore, The Hedgehog Handbook explores different facets of this much-admired mammal--from its wildlife habits to its literary heritage, how different cultures have viewed the hedgehog, and what we can do to help preserve this icon of rural life. Fun, sweet and warmhearted, The Hedgehog Handbook is a month by month celebration of one of the countryside's best-loved creatures. Packed with inspirational quotes, entertaining facts, folklore and literary references, it's the perfect gift for anyone with a penchant for prickles.
