An adult special edition illustrated Hedgehog poem from the beloved Pam Ayres to celebrate National Hedgehog Awareness Week.

To mark and celebrate National Hedgehog Awareness Week, Pam Ayres has written a less-than-fond farewell from the perspective of the `last hedgehog left on earth’ – a delightful, hilarious and thought-provoking elegy to that most beloved inhabitant of the British countryside, the common hedgehog. Pam Ayres’ spiky and wonderful creation reminds us that unless we take steps to prevent it, they will soon be far from `common’ indeed: beautifully illustrated by Alice Tait, the poem The Hedgehog sees our hero tell of all the terrible ends his family come to at our own hands – and exactly what we can still do to keep them alive, and see them thrive once more.
