What to expect
Brought to you by Puffin.
This wonderfully funny audio collection contains eight adventures from the master of animal tales, Dick King-Smith.
Perfect for young listeners, this magical collection features one of Dick King-Smith’s most-loved stories: The Hodgeheg.
Max is a hedgehog who lives with his family in a nice little home, but it’s on the wrong side of the road from the Park where there’s a beautiful lily pond and plenty of juicy slugs, worms and snails!
The busy road is dangerous, but Max is determined to make his way across. If humans can do it, why can’t hedgehogs? His first attempt ends in a nasty bump on the head and, when Max tries to speak, he realises his words are all mixed up. He is no longer a hedgehog but a hodgeheg!
Still determined to fulfil his mission, Max discovers the best way to cross the road – with the help of the lollipop lady and some careful detective work . . .
Other timeless classics included in this collection are:
Lightning Strikes Twice
A Narrow Squeak
Under the Mishmash tree
