Dick King-Smith served in the Grenadier Guards during the Second World War, and afterwards spent twenty years as a farmer in Gloucestershire, the county of his birth. Many of his stories are inspired by his farming experiences. He wrote a great number of children's books, including The Sheep-Pig (winner of the Guardian Award and filmed as Babe), Harry's Mad, The Hodgeheg, Martin's Mice, The Invisible Dog, The Queen's Nose and The Crowstarver. At the British Book Awards in 1991 he was voted Children's Author of the Year. In 2009 he was made OBE for services to children's literature. Dick King-Smith died in 2011 at the age of eighty-eight.

Ewan- Age 10
Back then I was 9 years old, and thought it was one of the sweetest and funniest books I had ever read. Now I'm 25 and my opinion has not changed.
After receiving a nasty bump on the head whilst trying to cross the road, Max the young hedgehog suddenly becomes a Hodgeheg, and starts getting all of his words confused. He gets lost on his way home, and has a little adventure.
This is an excellent book for adults to read to children, and also for those children who are developing reading fluency. Boys and girls from 8 upwards will enjoy this story.
