I have the kindle version of this and It's staying firmly on my current reading list. I have a pretty rounded knowledge of wildlife and I learned things I didn't know about Hedgehogs in the first few pages. Hugh displays a real love for the mini beasts without being sentimental - he even quotes a recipe published in a UK newspaper for Hedgehog Spagetti Carbonara (I nearly choked on my tea) and jokes about hedgehogs with slightly radioactive tags (used for visual tracking in his initial studies)forming a critical mass....
His sense of humour is quirky and completely in line with mine. I'd dearly like to meet this man and shake his hand.
The book follows his career from the English countryside to the hedgehog cull in the Scottish Islands, hedgehog charities all across the UK, the pet hedgehogs and their fans in the USA to the hunt for Hughes Hedgehog in China.
Read this if you love Hedgehogs and you'll be pleasantly surprised with how much more you know about them afterwards.
