News & Events
Uncle Stylus guided the gently chugging boat out of the bay and into the open sea.
The light shone directly in her eyes.
Snippette was introduced to explosives.
Spike on a Mission
The aeroplanes soared up into a clear blue sky, and Spike smiled to himself as he felt the tingle of excitement in his spines.
"Paws up!" said the enemy hedgehog. "For you ze var is over."
Looking down to where the dark sky merged into the blackness of the hills far below, she noticed directly beneath her two pinpricks of light.
Three bicycles were waiting for them, propped against a tree.
The chateau was a handsome brick building, surrounded by a high wall and barbed wire.
Snippette approached the chateau on all fours, until her way was blocked by a barbed wire.
Picnic with the Enemy
Snippette tried not to mention the war.
The Night of the Ball
The ballroom was bristling with Hegemon officers.
Snipper's Secret Room
Snipper waited for the ladder to reach the floor and then climbed up into his secret office.
The streets were bristling with hedgehogs, all wearing fancy dress.
Snipper sensed he was being watched.
Snipper swung himself forward and dropped just inside the balcony.
A Rock Fall
A stone grazed Snipper's face and another hit his back.
Back at the Chalet
They exchanged stories as they sat around a roaring fire.
Snipper came to three black windmills, just as described in Van Hogloot's letter.
Snipper got out his lock picking equipment and a pawful of tiny tracking devices.
The Turf House
Snipper approached the turf house from the side, where there were no doors or windows.
The Turf House
Snipper slipped in through the kitchen window.
The Last Chance
Snipper surveyed the enemy H.Q. through his night-vision binoculars.
The force of the explosion thrust upwards and outwards.
"Follow that car!" said Snipper, indicating the black saloon.
The Far Side of the Moon
They had come 230,000 miles in little more than an hour.
Floating in Space
There was no up or down in space.
The Hibernation Deck
Inside each pod was a sensor; outside was a thermometer.
Finally, the truth dawned upon her.
"It's life, Pawline, but not as we know it."
The cockpit was shaking violently now.
Their spaceship passed over the wormhole horizon.
Every building resembled a flying saucer.
"You're an Earthling!" exclaimed Peridot.
The two Earthlings returned the salute in silence and tried to avoid any eye contact.
With Woad on their tail, there would be no second chances.
The International Space Station
Pawline woke at 6 a.m. with the sound of "Mr Spacehog" playing over the loudspeaker.
Breakfast in Space
They ate a simple rehydrated breakfast.
The Space Walk
Pawline carried on with her photography. There would be plenty of time to fix the malfunction.
The ship had been swept onto the rocks. Her boats were adrift, and her crew stood clinging to the deck, with the waves crashing over them.
Hoglinda shouted as loudly as she could, waving her hat to catch his attention.
"Drop the axe!"
Twisting round, she was confronted by a group of four hedgehogs. One of them had a pistol in his paw, and it was pointed straight at her.
Two hedgehogs stood upon the threshold, one with a blood-stained cloth tied around his leg, who looked as though he was about to keel over.
Leaning against the front wall were three large sacks of flour; and the water wheel was in operation, turning noisily as the mill stream cascaded over it.
Voyage to Gruntsey
He got the crew to run out the log-line, while he turned a sandglass, to calculate their speed.
Through the Spyglass
"Can you see much sign of activity on board?" asked Spinet.
He walked slowly, looking to left and right as he went, apparently searching for someone.
The Secret Meeting
Hoglinda knelt down on the damp grass and listened.
The Press Gang
The press gang grabbed Rip and Tar and dragged them off their boat.
Flight from Gruntsey
"I trust the night has been uneventful?" she asked, as she joined Snipwicke at the tiller.
For a moment, Hoglinda thought she saw a flicker of fear on Snipwicke's face.
