About this deal

This wonderfully funny audio collection contains eight adventures from the master of animal tales, Dick King-Smith.

This is a charming story about a hedgehog Max who is determined to find a safe way for his family and loved ones to cross a busy road that's separating the garden where his family lives from a local park. This time he notices people crossing the road when they see a green man appearing on the traffic lights. It's a great story for teaching road safety awareness, particularly as all of Max's early attempts to cross the road come so close to ending badly. I started to read it to him to calm him down prior to him leaving Nanny’s to go home (always a trial) and he was enthralled.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. It does stop short if describing deaths but a curious child could well have questions based on the text. In this series of 6 lessons, packed with the Hodgeheg activities, your Year 2 class will look at some examples of non-chronological reports about animals including field mice and red squirrels, and explore the features of this genre of writing.

Sparkling humour and wonderful characters are Dick King-Smith’s trademarks’ – Books for Your ChildrenMax 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!

They will explore features and the purpose of these through examples of non-chronological reports, including reports on field mice and red squirrels. There are some nice little realistic details, like the description of the difference between a juvenile and an adult hedgehog, and how noisy young hedgehogs are (it really is true). Uncle B was my favourite character because he was saying nice things about people and helping to look after them. 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”.We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others.
