The Last Hedgehog by Pam Ayres

To mark and celebrate National Hedgehog Awareness Week, Pam Ayres has written a less-than-fond farewell from the perspective of the ‘last hedgehog left on earth’ – a delightful, hilarious and thought-provoking elegy to that most beloved inhabitant of the British countryside, the common hedgehog.

Pam Ayres’ spiky and wonderful creation reminds us that unless we take steps to prevent it, they will soon be far from ‘common’ indeed: beautifully illustrated by Alice Tait, the poem The Hedgehog sees our hero tell of all the terrible ends his family come to at our own hands – and exactly what we can still do to keep them alive, and see them thrive once more.

A special edition illustrated poem from the beloved Pam Ayres to celebrate National Hedgehog Awareness Week.

Peer & Press Reviews

The Last Hedgehog is a little book, but it’s an important book and it’s a profound book…  It’s sweet and wry and everything we'd expect from Pam Ayres… but at the end it gives the reader a bit of kicking.

Graham Norton, BBC Radio

Forget the corny comedian: Pam Ayres is a proper poet, whose wistful, funny, and perceptive verse captures both the joy and unfairness of life.
