‘Hedgehogs’ updates a classic work which first came out in 1983 with findings from recent research on hedgehogs. Pat Morris is passionate about hedgehogs, and likes telling stories about them. He also gives advice on caring for hedgehogs in your garden, including feeding, and providing shelter for hedgehogs, and how to encourage them to come into your garden. There’s an index, in case you need to look anything up. There’s also a list of further reading if you want to explore the world of hedgehogs.

The book is an enjoyable read, with short chapters, a lot of anecdotes, and the original illustrations by Guy Troughton. ‘Hedgehogs’ would make an ideal gift for young people interested in natural history, and is also fun for adults
