Roger becomes a star
Roger couldn't quite believe his meteoroic rise to fame. It was hard to take in for a humble hedgehog such as himself. One minute he was going about his normal humdrum existence - sit and wait each morning for breakfast, his house to be cleaned, his bed to be made up nice and fresh, just as he liked it, supper laid on in the evening.... in a word all his needs were met and he wanted for nothing - the next minute, without a word of warning, he was propelled into the limelight. He had always wondered what was meant by 'the limelight' and now he knew. On Wednesday November 25, 2009, he was abruptly woken from his morning slumber to find a television camera aimed directly at him. But Roger was not a hedgehog that was phased easily. He took it all in his stride and posed for the camera, taking care to always show his good side.
Having performed for the camera he went back to his bed and slept for the rest of the day. Little did he know that he had been catapulted into the stratosphere of the world of fame, and had done his bit to highlight the plight of hedgehogs in Britain today. All throughout Yorkshire people watching Look North on their televisions that evening commented on how calm and collected Roger had appeared for what was actually his debut in the world of television.
Roger had become a star!!
