Pam’s latest book, The Last Hedgehog, will be published by Picador on 3rd May 2018.

Published to mark and celebrate National Hedgehog Awareness Week, Pam Ayres has written a poignant farewell from ‘the last hedgehog left on earth’ – a delightful and thought-provoking elegy to that most beloved inhabitant of the British countryside, the common hedgehog. Pam Ayres’ spiky and wonderful creation reminds us that unless we take steps to prevent it, they will soon be very far indeed from ‘common’.

Beautifully illustrated by Alice Tait, the poem sees our hero tell of all the terrible ends his family have come to at our own hands – and exactly what we can still do to keep them alive, and see them thrive once more.



As well as her books Pam’s range of Greetings Cards, launched in early 2014 by card publishers Peartree Heybridge, are on sale in many Gift & Card shops, and in branches of Waitrose and the National Trust shops.     The cards can also be bought online from Click on link below to view/order cards.
