About Us

Who Are We?

Prickly Hedge is run by me, Yvonne Richards.  I live in the West Midlands in my very own Prickly Hedge – a beautiful garden that is home to all manner of wildlife.

This gave me the idea to create Bubble and Squeek, two hedgehogs who have fun and adventures in the garden they call their own, namely Prickly Hedge.  Through the stories and their adventures, they learn how best to help all their wildlife friends.  It is hoped that this will inspire young readers to engage more with wildlife and hopefully begin to not only help preserve it but create habitats in which it can thrive.

What Do We Do?

Help children to learn how to look after their environment

Through the stories of Bubble and Squeek, our aim is to teach children how to look after their environment.  

Empower children to grow in confidence
Give children a sense of connection
Foster in children an inclusiveness and tolerance for others
Provide children with activities to foster a love of nature
