The story begins with PA Hedgehog explaining to his children about the problems that hedgehogs have in crossing the road to get to the park. Max is a young hedgehog who wants to go to the park with his family because it is known for it's good hunting. His bravery and determination made him try again and again and it's his not giving up that makes him such an inspiring little hedgehog-hero.

For the easiest access, all our suits come with a two way zip, covered at the top to protect precious faces and retractable mitts and socks to keep those fingers and toogey toes all wrapped up. The Hodgeheg’ is the story of Max, a young hedgehog who wants to play in the park; his only obstacle is a busy road. 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, Noah’s Brother, The Queen’s Nose, Martin’s Mice, Ace, The Cuckoo Child and Harriet’s Hare (winner of the Children’s Book Award in 1995).

Loved the hedgehog point of view and felt like this was a cross between Toad Rage by Morris Gleitzman and Make Way for Ducklings by Robert McCloskey.

Still determined to get safely across the road, he continues on his adventures until eventually he reaches the park. Firstly, he finds a zebra crossing and decides that this must be the secret to crossing the road safely. Story about two hedgehogs that had babies - Max wanted to be the first hedgehog to cross the road, but he got run over on his head and was saying his sentences the wrong way round. This wonderfully funny audio collection contains eight adventures from the master of animal tales, Dick King-Smith. I quite like the Hodgeheg because Max kept trying cross the road but it wasn't the best place to cross if you were a hedgehog so Max tried to find a way.The Hodgeheg is a children's book written by author Dick-King Smith, who specializes in animal books. The included slideshow presentation for the teaching input will show them two paragraphs, both containing the same facts but with one being more detailed than the other. The 35th anniversary of The Hodgeheg – a timeless classic tale for young children from the master of animal stories, Dick King-Smith. The Hodgeheg tells the story of Max, a hedgehog who bumps his head after an attempt to cross the road. They will form a list of sentence openers as a class that will then help to inform their report writing at a later date.

The complex nature of this longer text-based storybook also makes it ideal to be used to assess and increase children's reading comprehension, both in terms of gaining information directly available from the text and inferring information from what is implied. Still determined to fulfil his mission, Max discovers the best way to cross the road is with the help of the lollipop lady and some careful detective work.This funny and heartwarming story encourages adventure and bravery though similarly shows the need for caution and is great for introducing children to the concept of road safety. We're told at the beginning of the story that his Auntie Betty has been killed crossing the road and that the roads are becoming more dangerous for hedgehogs.
