Yoto says: Follow Max's journey from hedgehog to hodgeheg in this collection of stories from Dick King-Smith.
Puffin presents eight stories from master storyteller, Dick King-Smith.
This collection features one of Dick King-Smith's most loved characters, The Hodgeheg.
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!
The busy road is dangerous but Max is determined to make his way across. If humans can do it, why can't hedgehogs? His first attempt ends in a nasty bump on the head and, when Max tries to speak, he realises his words are all mixed up. He is no longer a hedgehog but a hodgeheg!
Still determined to fulfil his mission, Max discovers the best way to cross the road - with the help of the lollipop lady and some careful detective work . . .
The other brilliant stories featured this collection are: Poppet, E.S.P, The Mousebutcher, The Merrythought, Lightning Strikes Twice, A Narrow Squeak and Under the MishMash Trees.

This Yoto Card requires a Yoto Player or Yoto Mini to be playable.
The Yoto player is a carefully connected screen free speaker for kids. Back in 2015 the founders of Yoto were, like many of us concerned about the effects of to much screen time for their kids.
They decided to make a prototype of a screen free speaker that kids from toddler to 12+ could enjoy. After launching a kickstart campaign in 2017 which was fulfilled in just days the first generation yoto player was put into production. Since then it has been a run away success with more cards and content and useful accessories being launched regularly.
2021 saw the launch of the Yoto mini, a smaller travel sized screen free speaker for day trips and holidays.
Here at Little Goat Gruff we have a Yoto player at home for our little ones, its a huge success and much loved by both of them. All the content is loved, podcasts, music, books plus we use the white noise and sleep songs for bed time and then as a night light! It is a very robust little machine, ours has weathered being left out in the rain (obviously NOT advised!), many drops and knocks and once the card slot may even of been filled with porridge…..we won’t name any names but it survived and is still going strong!
