'Mrs Hog had already noticed that the fourth baby was the last to do everything. He seemed to be smaller than the rest, but what worried her more than anything was that he had no spines.'
Hoglet is a problem hedgehog! With no prickles to defend himself, he needs to overcome his lack of spines and find somewhere safe and warm to hibernate for the winter. Hoglet is a small hedgehog with a big attitude, but will he survive the worsening weather and other wild creatures of the woods?
A heartwarming tale, set in the Scottish countryside, of one little hedgehog's attempts to conquer adversity with politeness -- and a certain amount of luck! This delightful and charmingly illustrated book will appeal to young and old alike.
Allyson Marnoch is a working mother of two who lives in Perth, Scotland. Her love of animals, and hedgehogs in particular, inspired her to write Hoglet, her first published book. She has rescued several orphan hedgehogs over the winter months and hopes Hoglet will help make the younger generation aware of the plight of hedgehogs in a dangerous world. Lorraine Ward lives in the countryside just outside Perth, Scotland with her family and pets. She has always loved animals and wildlife, and is lucky to have lots of wild creatures visiting her garden, including hedgehogs.
