‘Ferdinand Fox trotted down past the park, where the seesaws and swings stood still in the dark. His magnificent tail sailed along in the light of the streetlamp above, which lit up the night.’
‘That very same night, seeking bugs with her snout, Hatty the hedgehog was out and about. As soon as she smelled the scent of a fox, she scampered to hide in an old soggy box…’
Includes eight pages of photos and fun facts about foxes and hedgehogs 🙂
When Ferdinand Fox meets Edmond the baby hedgehog playing out alone one night, little Ed shrieks and curls into a tight prickly ball. He thinks the fox will eat him! But Ed soon realises that he is safe, and has just met a very special fox. Also introducing Hatty, Ed’s mum…
Perfect to share with toddlers and pre-school children ages 3-5. Older siblings and grown-ups will also love the rhyme!

Hello Stefan! Thank you so much for leaving a review of Ferdinand Fox and the Hedgehog 🙂 I am so glad that you enjoyed the story and enjoyed learning lots of new facts about foxes and hedgehogs! I hope you’re having a lovely day — it’s pouring with rain here in the UK!! Please say hello to your class at Jolly English for me. All the best and thank you again – Karen
We really love reading this story about Ferdinand Fox and the Hedgehog! We love hedgehogs and have 2 that visit our garden.
It was lovely to meet Karen the author at the Barnes Children’s Literature Festival too.
Thanks Poppy (age 3) and Mummy
Oh, thank you, Nicola – it was lovely to meet you and I’m so glad that you and Poppy enjoyed / are enjoying the story! In fact there are four more stories already written – next up will be Ferdinand Fox and the Close Shave, which involves a lawnmower, Ferdinand Fox, Hatty and little Ed – it all ends well though 🙂
Thank you again and happy rhyming!
(BTW if you happen to use Amazon and felt like leaving a short review there it would be lovely and will help spread the word! I sell l in local bookshops and always support them, but also online and online is the only way to spread the word beyond SW London! That said, I remember just how busy it gets with little ones so no worries if you don’t get a chance!)
