5.0 out of 5 stars The Best!, June 9 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: The Hedgehog: An Owner's Guide to a Happy Healthy Pet (Hardcover)
Dawn's book was one that i happened upon while looking for information on having a hedgehog as a pet. As I did more research I found so many books available that have potentially deadly information in them.
I found several breederes in the USA that will not sell a hedgehog to a new person before they have read this book. It is an easy read, with good information. It also has very cute pictures. If you think you want a hedgehog, READ THIS BOOK FIRST!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book, even for experienced owners, March 21 2001

This review is from: The Hedgehog: An Owner's Guide to a Happy Healthy Pet (Hardcover)
This book had a lot of great information, especially considering it was published in 95. There was a lot of information that even experienced hedgie owners will find useful. There is background/history information on the hedgehog that I hadn't read before. Well written and a good book overall.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Hedgie Book Around, Oct. 29 2000
By 
Linda Woodring (Naperville, IL USA) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Hedgehog: An Owner's Guide to a Happy Healthy Pet (Hardcover)
I've read many books on hedgies in preparation for buying one, and this is the best. We got our little guy from Dawn who has never given us any bad information about raising a happy and healthy hedgehog. She spent a lot of time with us, so we'd have the right hedgie for our family and really knows her stuff. So many books have bad informtion in them. If you're thinking about adding one of these little characters to your family, this is the book to read before doing so.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book available on the market., Sept. 19 2001
By 
Heather (CHARLESTON, SC, United States) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: The Hedgehog: An Owner's Guide to a Happy Healthy Pet (Hardcover)
Hedgehogs are still considered "fad" pets by many, and several of the books available on the market today reflect that by providing information that treats these charming, intelligent animals as disposable pets. Dawn's book systematically goes through most aspects of hedgehog care, speaking with expert knowledge and true affection for these animals. A novice hedgehog owner, or someone considering bringing one home for the first time, will get a lot of valuable information from this book.
I highly recommend.

The book was a very informative source to caring for a hedgie. I bought the book a week after I got my first hedgehog. It had interesting tips and ideas on the best ways to care for him.

5.0 out of 5 stars There is much to learn before getting a hedgie..., Sept. 3 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Hedgehog: An Owner's Guide to a Happy Healthy Pet (Hardcover)
The best book on HH I have seen. Read it before you get a hedgie. Highly readable, well edited, it covers the origins, description, choosing a HH, behaviors/personality/socializing/having fun with, health (sexually active at 7 weeks means that females can easily be pregnant if weanlings weren't kept separated) and feeding, even legal issues of ownership. Plenty of good color photos, and important details in sidebars so you won't miss them, make this well-organized, up-to-date book a must for your decision-making. The final two chapters list and give some description of recommended books and magazines, and list associations and mail order sources for food and supplies. Ms. Wrobel and Dr. Brown clearly love the little hedgehog and are informed and experienced. They also recommend Dennis Kelsey-Wood's titles: African Pygmy Hedgehogs As Your New Pet, and Hedgehogs Today. Breed if you must, use their list of resources, but the hedgie I own, love, and obtained through rescue should not have even been in the pet store; this book introduced me (fast) to the proper care of the hedgehog. If you add a HH to your happy home, you will probably end up maintaining mealworms in your 'frig ; afterall, HHs are insectivores and need "variety". Hedgies are grand (and sharp) (and nocturnal); try to be sure they are a right choice for you and your lifestyle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for a beginner or for reference by the experienced, Jan. 16 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Hedgehog: An Owner's Guide to a Happy Healthy Pet (Hardcover)
This is by far the most up to date book on hedgehogs I have seen yet. The book takes you through everything from what to look for when purchasing your new hedgie and preparing his home, to what to do in case of emergencies. There is an excellent section on hedgehog nutrition - much more in depth and up-to-date than most.
