About this book

In his refreshingly lighthearted style, Pat Morris presents scientific and down-to-earth information about one of Britain's best-loved wild creatures, the bumbling and endearing hedgehog. Dr Morris's book, in its various editions, has remained the principal 'popular' book on the hedgehog for over thirty years – a measure of its success and usefulness.

The 1983 (original) edition of Hedgehogs was 124 pages with no photographs, this latest edition is 204 plus 8 pages of colour photos from Pat Morris. Through the editions, it was updated four times with a major revision in 2006 (for The New Hedgehog Book) when all the illustrations were redrawn as well. This British Natural History Edition has been revised again, mainly to include the latest findings about the threat of the growing population of badgers on hedgehogs, but it has been generally updated and now has the photos.
