If you've not read Hugh Warwick's "A Prickly Affair" then I urge you to do so. If ever there was one book that championed the hedgehog then this is it. Warwick explains convincingly how the humble hedgehog can save the world! It's a fascinating book and should appeal not only to rabid fans of this little insectivore (like me and some of you reading this blog) but also to those who up until now only had a passing interest in wildlife.
A Prickly Affair: The Charm of the Hedgehog is out in paperback today.
Meanwhile here is an article from yesterday's Independent in which Hugh Warwick explains why hedgehogs are heroes of the garden.
