About this deal

It does stop short if describing deaths but a curious child could well have questions based on the text. The things I liked about the story are funny things that Max says like, “ the lolly pop lady is a witch with a magic wand that makes the cars stop”. The only problem is, it's on the other side of a busy road and many hedgehogs have died trying to get there.

We're told at the beginning of the story that his Auntie Betty has been killed crossing the road and that the roads are becoming more dangerous for hedgehogs. This book plays with language brilliantly and children would find it amusing and possibly difficult to understand to begin with but after one explanation they would really enjoy this book.Born in Gloucestershire in 1922, Dick King-Smith grew up surrounded by pets and knew from a young age that he wanted to be a farmer.

A detailed lesson plan, a slideshow for the teaching input, and differentiated worksheets are all included in this Features of a Non-chronological Report KS1 English planning pack! His first attempt ends in a nasty bump on the head, and Max finds when he tries to speak his words are all mixed up. They include The Sheep-Pig, which won the Guardian Award and was filmed as the hugely successful and beloved Babe, as well as The Hodgeheg, The Queen's Nose, The Fox Busters, the Sophie stories, Daggie Dogfoot (Pigs Might Fly) and many more.Max didn't get discouraged by the failure of his attemps but kept trying to find a way for his loved ones to cross the road safely. Max is a hedgehog who lives with his family in a nice little home, but it's on the wrong side of the road from the Park where there's a beautiful lily pond and plenty of juicy slugs, worms and snails!

Max provides some valuable lessons to young adventurers, but above all it is an inspiring little story about a hedgehog who simply was not willing to give up in his quest, which at times was filled with danger, for a solution to the problem facing hedgehogs. Although he has finally made it across the road, and to the park, he now has another problem; he does not know how to get back. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others.Max considers the problem for a while and decides that the best thing to do is run across the road as quick as he can before any more traffic comes. For it was the young, adventurous and bright Max who set out on his adventures to discover a safe way for hedgehogs to cross the road safely. Max is a hedgehog who lives with his family, but their house is on the wrong side of the road from the park where there is a beautiful lily pond and plenty of juicy slugs!

I personally enjoyed the book a lot and would strongly recommend it to children to read at least once during their childhood. Max is a young hedgehog who wants to go to the park with his family because it is known for it's good hunting.Now that your KS1 class knows all sorts of facts about hedgehogs, it’s time to plan their non-chronological reports! The Hodgeheg’ is the story of Max, a young hedgehog who wants to play in the park; his only obstacle is a busy road.
