5-0 out of 5 stars The best hedgehog book out there.
You can buy it at the Hedgehog Valley website, and also find more info there.This is a wonderful book, the most up to date info out there (besides the internet).Some other hedgehog books are quite a few years old and include info that may be the death of your hedgehog, as they are based on European hedgehogs or theories that have been disproved since the books were published.This book contains everything you need to know to have a happy and healthy hedgie. ...

Product Description
If you want a unique pet, look no further than the hedgehog. These adorable little creatures look like miniature porcupines. Unlike porcupines, though, hedgehogs are legal to own as pets in most states. Owning a hedgehog is surprisingly easy. In addition to a food bowl and a water bottle, all you need to buy for this animal is a cage with some fun hiding spots inside it. Since they are nocturnal, hedgehogs are awake in the evening hours when you are home from school. Don t be startled if your hedgehog rolls into a ball when you pick it up, though. Many members of this species do this when they are frightened. The more your hedgehog gets to know you, the less it will do this. Can you convince your parents that a hedgehog would make a good pet for you? The key is to learn as much as you can about these fascinating little animals, so you can show your parents that you have done your homework. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Deadly
I only have one world for this book.DEADLY!

1-0 out of 5 stars Terribly outdated and dangerous.
I cannot fault the intent of Vriends since I do not know him personally, but this book has caused me as a hedgehog rescuer no end of difficulty.This book -- and others -- recommend things that are terrible for hedgehogs.Cedar shavings, as another reviewer noted, are recommended by this book.The aromatic oils from cedar shavings can cause respiratory failure in hedgehogs and other complications.It gets worse from there.

The novice hedgehog owner is not going to pick up on these inaccuracies or errors, and that means that because of this book, hedgehogs are going to receive poor care.If you want a better book, try Dawn Wrobel's The Hedgehog: Owner's Guide to a Happy Healthy Pet OR try doing some research on the Internet instead, where the information is frequently peer-reviewed and kept more up-to-date than in a static publication.

1-0 out of 5 stars This book almost killed my hedgehog!Don't buy this book!
This is a good book for anyone who is planning on reading other books on hedgehogs besides this one.It provides basic information that is neccesary to know.However it stops there.There is nothing extraordinaryabout this book.Plus some of the information is wrong.By following thedirections in this book, I almost killed my hedgehog.

2-0 out of 5 stars Nicely presented but not all correct!
The more I got into the book, the less it reminded me of the prickly critters I have grown to love. Much of his information is incorrect (the usage of cedar shavings, the 'nausea' sections, etc) and the rest seems tobe based off of his observation of African Pygmies in the WILD. Appearantlyour domesticated pets behave a little differently. An alright book ingeneral, but you need to discern the good from the bad and that may not betoo obvious for the new hedgehog afficionado.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is charming book,esppecially for anyone likes hedgehogs
This is one of the most fasanating books I have ever read.If you are considering a hedgehog or already own one you must perchis this book.It covers evrything from taming,to raising your own hedgehogs, and evenletting them go in your own backyard. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars hedgehog book
Very good book if a little old. A good starting point, but i will be looking at something a little newer.

1-0 out of 5 stars Buy it for the photos, not for the content.
All of Kelsey-Woods' books have terrific photos, but poorly organized and often inaccurate information.Sections on hedgehog diet recommend foods that are high in fat, low in protein -- exactly the opposite of what a hedgehog needs.He also recommends the use of gloves while handling hedgehogs -- a true no-no if you ever expect your pet to bond with you.The habitats shown in the book are not large enough for an active hedgehog.

This book is widely distributed, and I am sad every time I see it displayed in a bookstore.Hedgehogs all over the country are receiving sub-standard care because of this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Informative with lots of beautiful photographs
My daughter just bought her first hedgehog as a pet. Although she researched hedgehogs before deciding to buy one, she was able to learn some important facts of which she was unaware. This book contains exquisitephotographs and stresses the importance of selecting a hedgehog of goodhealth and temperament. It is a good source of information for those whoare new to hedgehogs, yet find them totally irresistable. We have allfallen in love with this new prickly family member ... Read more
