Description
In this hilarious, baffling, and entertaining celebration of one of the world's most prickly yet adored little creatures, a British environmentalist gets to the bottom of the sudden boom in hedgehog popularity. Hugh Warwick examines the relationship between the hedgehog and man, tracing the mammal's natural evolution and its elevation from despised vermin to much-beloved beast.

"Along with descriptions of early hedgehog-inspired folk tales as well as the recent worldwide craze of hedgehog pet-keeping, Warwick provides wonderful insight into what the philosopher Schopenhauer called the Hedgehog's Dilemma—how can two of the spiky animals be close to each other without causing pain?"—Publishers Weekly
