Master Prickles is not allowed to go and play in the meadow with his friends until he can roll up into a ball. It takes him a while and some effort to achieve this, and just in time, for his new-found skill is soon put to the test!
This amusing tale introduces Master Prickles, Red Squirrel, Bright Robin, Rabbits, Badger Cub and Fox.  
Inspired by Richard Spare’s drypoints, this beautiful picture book for young children features both Kay Spare's watercolours and Richard's acclaimed drypoints of the main characters.
