Hoglet the Spineless Hedgehog

Allyson Marnoch Illustrated by Lorraine Ward

128 pp.  

Floris Books


Published:  February 2010


“Mrs. Hog had already noticed that the fourth baby was the last to do everything. He seemed to be smaller than the rest, but what worried her more than anything was that he had no spines.”

Hoglet is a problem hedgehog! With no prickles to defend himself, he needs to overcome his lack of spines and find somewhere safe and warm to hibernate for the winter. Hoglet is a small hedgehog with a big attitude, but will he survive the worsening weather and other wild creatures of the woods?

A heartwarming tale, set in the Scottish countryside, of one little hedgehog’s attempts to conquer adversity with politeness—and a certain amount of luck! This delightful and charmingly illustrated book will appeal to young and old alike.

(Ages 6–10)
