Description
In this hilarious, baffling, and entertaining celebration of one of the world's most prickly yet adored little creatures—published in the United States as The Hedgehog's Dilemma—a British environmentalist explores the boom in hedgehog popularity. A bit dotty about the hedgehog ever since he encountered them in the Orkney Islands some 20 years earlier, Hugh Warwick here considers the relationship between the hedgehog and man, its elevation from despised vermin to much-beloved beast, and how his own studies helped reverse anti-hedgehog legislation in Britain.

"The most glorious mad book.... [It] will take your mind off everything."—Jeanette Winterson

"The whole book is a delight to read, written in the same cheery and enthusiastic style that characterizes Hugh as a person. My wife seized my review copy and read it almost continuously for two days, occasionally chuckling or exclaiming in delight about what fun it was to read."—British Hedgehog Preservation Society
