The Last Hedgehog [9781509881260]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
'A national treasure' Daily Express To mark and celebrate National Hedgehog Awareness Week, Pam Ayres has written a less-than-fond farewell from `the last hedgehog left on earth' - a delightful and thought-provoking elegy to that most beloved inhabitant of the British countryside, the common hedgehog. Pam Ayres' spiky and wonderful creation reminds us that unless we take steps to prevent it, they will soon be far from `common' indeed: beautifully illustrated in watercolour by Alice Tait, the poem The Last Hedgehog sees our hero tell of all the terrible ends his family come to at our own hands - and exactly what we can still do to keep them alive, and see them thrive once more.
AUTHOR: Pam Ayres was born in Oxfordshire, and has been a writer, broadcaster, and entertainer for over 40 years. She is the author of several best-selling poetry collections, including The Works, With These Hands, Surgically Enhanced and You Made Me Late Again!. Many of her poems are in school textbooks around the world including the UK, USA, China, Australia, New Zealand, Holland, South Africa, Ireland and Singapore. Pam's autobiography, The Necessary Aptitude, was the UK's bestselling female autobiography of 2011. Pam performs her solo stage show throughout the UK, and has toured Australia and New Zealand regularly since 1978. She is one of a select few female comedians to have played the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall. She has appeared at many Literary and Arts Festivals throughout the UK including Hay, Cheltenham, Edinburgh Fringe, and overseas in Hong Kong and Dubai. Pam appears regularly on TV, most recently on BBC's Springwatch, Celebrity Antiques Road Trip, Celebrity Mastermind, and a programme about her time in the WRAF in the recent BBC Women at War series. On radio Pam appears regularly on BBC Radio 4's Just A Minute, and 2018 will see her recording the sixth series of her own Ayres on the Air for Radio 4. Pam was awarded the MBE in 2004 for services to literature and entertainment, and lives in the Cotswolds.
