The Hodgeheg

All the hedgehogs dream of the Great Crossing which will take them across the road to a new life on the other side. A new life in the Park, with its beautiful lily pond, and juicy slugs, worms and snails! But who will lead the hedgehogs across the dangerous road to their brave new world? Could Max be the hero they’ve been waiting for? A warm and spirited comic story about overcoming obstacles, from favourite author Dick King-Smith.
