This lovely title follows the life cycle of a badger, from a cub's first steps out of its den to finding a mate. You can find out about some of the different habitats that are the badger's home, from urban gardens to remote woodlands, and about the threats facing badgers today and why some people see them as pests. You can also be an 'animal detective' and find out how you can tell if a badger has been in your neighbourhood. Includes an animal map, locator map, life cycle summary and 'unusual fact' boxes.
