Where Hedgehogs Dare

FULL COLOUR edition, featuring 53 delightful illustrations by the author. An exciting and witty adventure story for 7-11 year-olds, set in a parallel world populated by hedgehogs. The story opens as the Second World War is unfolding. Great Bristlin stands alone against Hegemony and needs every hedgehog it can get: Spike has joined His Majesty's Air Force and is flying reconnaissance missions; and Clou has formed an escape line to help Bristlish prisoners-of-war on the run. Snippette is determined to escape from her enemy-occupied island and do her bit for the war, too - even if it's just making widgets in a factory. However, the mysterious Field Liaison and Espionage Agency (known to its agents as F.L.E.A.) has something altogether more dangerous in mind, and Snippette will soon hold the fate of nations in her paws. 'Where Hedgehogs Dare' takes Snippette, Flight Lieutenant Spike and Clou, the Comte de Grif, on a dangerous journey behind enemy lines - a parachute drop, crash landing, secret messages, deception and self-sacrifice. Some will be captured. All risk their lives.
