A must for animal lovers
on 31 March 2010
On the face of it, unless you're into hedgehogs and their lifestyle, this isn't the book you would naturally go for but the more you read the more you get hooked.
Hugh Warwick is a completely dotty ecologist who spends his time sitting in freezing fields in the middle of the night watching hedgehogs doing what they do, and he has a way of getting the charm of these wonderful creatures across that nobody else can. When not field sitting, he can be found associating with even dottier Americans at the Hedgehog Olympics, and native American Indians busily engaged in rescuing them.
The book made me laugh and in places it made me cry but I found it was one of the few books I've not been able to put down until I reached the end.
Dotty author, dotty subjects but highly entertaining and you might learn something along the way.
