The 35th anniversary of The Hodgeheg - a timeless classic tale for young children from the master of animal stories, Dick King-Smith. 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.

On one of his attempts he gets a bump to the head by a cyclist which results in his words all mixed up when he tries to speak - and he becomes a "hodgeheg". I would also suggest a slight content warning if read to the very young due to the hints of mortality. He enjoys writing for children, meeting the children who read his books, and knowing that they get enjoyment from what he does. The Hodgeheg tells the story of Max, a hedgehog who bumps his head after an attempt to cross the road.The Hodgeheg’ is the story of Max, a young hedgehog who wants to play in the park; his only obstacle is a busy road. Yoto says: Follow Max's journey from hedgehog to hodgeheg in this collection of stories from Dick King-Smith. In this Gathering Facts KS1 Lesson Pack, children will first revisit their understanding of facts as something that is true before playing 'true or false' linked to the information they extracted from the text in the previous lesson.

The pictures add extra charm to the book and help the children relate to the characters in the book. Firstly, he finds a zebra crossing and decides that this must be the secret to crossing the road safely. In the end detemined Max finds a way for hedgehogs to cross safely, with the help of a lollipop lady!

Still determined to get safely across the road, he continues on his adventures until eventually he reaches the park. I also like it when Max’s dad, a fellow Hedgehog, snuck into the next door neighbours garden and stole all of their dog food, which they enjoy eating. Max is a hedgehog who lives with his family in a nice little home, but unfortunately on the wrong side of the road from the Park, with its beautiful lily pond, and more importantly its juicy slugs, worms and snails! 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).
