This lovely title follows the life cycle of a hedgehog, from a hoglet's first steps out of its den to finding a mate. You can also find out about some of the different habitats that are the hedgehog's home, the threats facing hedgehogs today and why some people see them as pests. You can also be an 'animal detective' and find out how you can tell if a hedgehog has been in your neighbourhood. Includes an animal map, locator map, life cycle summary and 'unusual fact' boxes.
