However, the security of information and payments transmitted via the internet cannot be guaranteed.

Responsibility for Local Taxes and Duties

The UK sales tax of value added tax (VAT) is not payable on books.

If you are outside the UK, please contact us at [email protected].

When we ship books for delivery outside the UK, the recipient is liable for any local taxes or import duties that may be payable. The Little Hedgehog can take no responsibility for this, and if the books are returned due to unpaid tax, the costs will not be refunded as the sale has been completed. The books can be re-dispatched with a further charge for dispatch at the customer’s request.

We recommend that you check with your local customs officials or post office for more information regarding importation taxes/duties that may be applicable to your online order.

If you are unhappy with your order for any reason, please contact us within five working days of receiving your package. We will do our best to resolve the problem quickly. Refunds and exchanges are considered on a case-by-case basis.

Return Policy

We will provide you with a refund within 30 days of purchase if the book is returned to us in re-sellable condition and you have your receipt. (If the book is worn or has an inscription, it is ineligible for return.)

Your right to an exchange for faulty/damaged books has a return period greater than 60 days in accordance with your statutory rights.

We will refund to your original payment method.

Order Cancellation

A customer may cancel an order between placing the order and up to 14 days after receipt of the books. If the cancellation happens after the books have been dispatched, then a refund will be made within 14 days of the books being received back by The Little Hedgehog or within 14 days of receiving proof of postage from the customer, if that occurs earlier.
