It's time for Fuzzypeg the hedgehog to start school and he is very excited. He leaves home and heads through the hedgerows to his village school. When Tim and Bill Hedgehog see their cousin Fuzzypeg trotting down the road with his fine new school bag, they want to go to school too. But then they meet Hare and their whole day is turned upside down.
Alison Uttley (1884 - 1976) grew up at Castle Top Farm in Derbyshire and her passion for the countryside comes across vividly in the timeless Little Grey Rabbit Stories, the first of which were published over eighty years ago. Margaret Tempest (1892 - 1982) illustrated these classic tales with sensitivity, warmth, wit and a true understanding of the English countryside where they are set. Her partnership with Uttley lasted for forty years.
