A very lovely hedgehog

I was recently at the fantastic St. Peters School talking and reading with its wonderful pupils. I asked them to help me out with some ideas for my next book. Could they think of any animals that would make the perfect character for my story? Would they be big, small, fierce or shy?

Well, we had such fun sharing our thoughts and one pupil, Ethan Gough, even sent me his brilliant illustration by email. Take a look at his fantastic hedgehog – such a lot of hard work gone into the drawing!

Now... what shall we call this hedgehog...? Any ideas?
