The adventures are about a badger called Itchybald Scratchet, who is the main character in all the books. His friends call him Itchy (The story began by accident, when a real badger was discovered living underneath my sister’s shed).
He is trying to protect his woodland home from being built on by the Upples (Name for people).
Itchy has a wife called Matty, her fur is always matted and requires a lot of grooming.
Whilst collecting fallen apples Itchy accidentally gets himself in trouble and is helped by Enor-Mouse who later becomes his best friend.
