Quotes

'One of our favourite books of the year'

Yorkshire Post

'Wonderful ... A responsible perspective on animal conservation is underwritten by presentation of the shocking facts, all the better to shake the reader out of the kind of complacency which is a part of the problem'

Yorkshire Times

'Illustrated by the author's own delightful drawings and woodcuts, the small-format board-backed volume presents just about every hedgehog fact you could wish to know'

Northern Echo

'This engaging study of the much-loved prickly mammals is not just a celebration of these enigmatic creatures, but also a timely alarm bell about their shrinking numbers'

The Lady
