Richard Heddington, children’s author.

Richard Heddington first drew Henry the Hedgegnome when he was at school in the late 1970’s.
Although most hedgehogs are renowned for hibernating, Henry the Hedgegnome took it to the extreme and had a 40 year nap before being awoken to star in a bedtime story for Richard’s first granddaughter.
It was while reading a MrMen book as a bedtime story that he realised the simple illustrated format was perfect for Henry the Hedgegnome. After a rummage in the attic to find the original drawings, the first book ‘Henry the Hedgegnome has a busy day’ was soon written, illustrated, and published.
Since the publication of that first book, Henry the Hedgegnome has grown in popularity and the stories are now sold around the world.
When asked about the 40 years it took to create the children’s book series, Richard jokes that “Sometimes, overnight success takes a little time.”
