Does it hurt to hold a hedgehog? Find out the answer and spark kids' natural curiosity about pets with this inquiry-based nonfiction book. Hedgehogs take stop, drop, and roll (into a ball) to the next level. Their prickly quills are a good defense against predators, but as pets, their adorable faces steal the show! Readers will learn about life with a pet hedgehog, including handling techniques, hedgehogs' skittish nature, and their ability to run for miles on a hedgehog wheel.
