Hedgehog

28 Feb

There is really only one word to describe the book “Hedgehog” by Hugh Warwick, and that word is ‘enchanting‘.

“Hedgehog” is loaded with lots of facts about hedgehogs.  Did you know, for example, that there are fourteen different species of hedgehog?

But what makes this delightful little book a cut above other animal books is the wonderful chapters on hedgehogs in art, literature, and philosophy.

Growing up in New Zealand with hedgehogs living in our large back yard (we had a quarter of an acre), I got to see the wonderful procession of mother and hoglets on several occasions, and developed an abiding love for these adorable, and quirky, little creatures.  So imagine my delight when New Zealand cartoonist Burton Silver got a mention for his cartoon hedgehogs.  There is also an illustration from one of his strips.

There are many beautiful pictures of hedgehogs, hedgehog art, hedgehog toys etc.

This book is the perfect gift for the hedgehog enthusiast in your life.

Highly recommended.
