The Hodgeheg by Dick King-Smith

'If humans can, why NOT hedgehogs?"

Max the hedgehog lives across 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. 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! Will Max ever make it to the other side?



Read the blurb above and then answer the questions below.

The Hodgeheg Part 1

For our writing this week, we'd like you to consider how Max is feeling and what he can hear and see when he decides to find out about the road.
