Product description

The 35th anniversary of The Hodgeheg – a timeless classic tale for young children from the master of animal stories, Dick King-Smith. Includes an author profile and interview, and fun facts.

‘Sparkling humour and wonderful characters are Dick King-Smith’s trademarks’ – Books for Your Children

Max is a hedgehog who lives with his family in a nice little home, but it’s on the wrong side of the road from the Park where there’s a beautiful lily pond and plenty of juicy slugs, worms and snails! The busy road is dangerous but Max is determined to make his way across. If humans can do it, why can’t hedgehogs? His first attempt ends in a nasty bump on the head and, when Max tries to speak, he realises his words are all mixed up. He is no longer a hedgehog but a hodgeheg!

Still determined to fulfil his mission, Max discovers the best way to cross the road – with the help of the lollipop lady and some careful detective work . . .

Our October 2023 Ages 5-6 Book of the Month

Our Book of the Month for 5+ is The Hodgeheg, a classic from the master of animal stories, Dick King-Smith. Max is a hedgehog who lives with his family, but their house is on the wrong side of the road from the park where there is a beautiful lily pond and plenty of juicy slugs! Follow Max on his adventure as he dares attempt to cross the street!

The Hodgeheg is an enduring classic perfect for animal-loving children, while also providing an accessible and engaging story for children just beginning to branch out in their reading – great to read alone or read aloud with parents! This funny and heartwarming story encourages adventure and bravery though similarly shows the need for caution and is great for introducing children to the concept of road safety.
