The Hedgehog's Full Moon Party

It's been nearly a year since our last post, but that doesn't mean we've not been busy.  Oh no, quite the opposite, we've been working hard behind the scenes to line up a series of new books that are going to hit the children's and adults' market.  

After much shuffling and snuffling about, we're very proud to announce the arrival of our latest star, Lavender the hedgehog, who appears in her first adventure on the 26th November 2018.

Available from 26th November 2018 at all good bookstores and online retailers. 
The process of writing a children's book is never an easy one.  It's taken nearly three years to get the project completed, this included finding an illustrator to take the job on and several redrafts to get the design and feel of the book looking just right.  There was also a great deal of care to preserve the artistry of Abigail de Montfort's beautiful artwork so that each picture kept its vibrancy.

The book is 34 pages long and includes an array of colourful, layered images which are accompanied by a fun and engaging narrative.  Each night, Lavender the hedgehog goes out for her dinner and meets different types of friends on her nocturnal adventures, old and new.

Fully Road Tested 

The book has, like all other titles from Burton Mayers Books, been fully road-tested (not something positively associated with hedgehogs, I might add); receiving the full treatment from librarians, teachers and, most importantly, readers from primary schools, you'll be wanting to hear about more of Lavender's adventures.  

The book also has a nod of approval from the British Hedgehog Preservation Society (BHPS) and the People's Trust for Endangered Species (PTES), with the narrative featuring the highway sign from the recent Hedgehog Street campaign to open up the UK's gardens to be more hedgehog friendly.

A Kindle version is also available for the book with Amazon offering a special matchbook deal when you purchase the paperback version.  RRP is just £8.99, so support small, independent publishers and order your copy today - it's perfect for any nature lover, night-crawler (in a non-creepy way), and wildlife enthusiast. 

Kids absolutely love it - you won't be disappointed.  It's the perfect bedtime story.
