The Hedgehog Book is written by our very own Hedgehog Street ambassador, Hugh Warwick. More than just a ‘species guide’, the book considers not only the animal itself but also its interaction with mankind.

A welcome visitor heard rustling through our hedges or spotted shuffling across our lawns, hedgehogs are a celebrated addition to every garden and their proper care and conservation valuable to numerous other species. Through informative chapters ranging from the physiological and environmental to the inclusion of the hedgehog in myth, legend, art and literature, The Hedgehog Book is an ideal guide to its subject for all nature lovers, beautifully illustrated throughout with new photography and artwork.
