As they suggest, everybody has some prickles sometimes, and the trick is learning how to get close enough to see the non-prickliness on the inside. Quills and porcupines are quite popular these days, making it easy to pair this one with other porcupine picture books that make the same point--Paul Schmid's Hugs from Pearl see my review here and Laurie Isop's How Do You Hug a Porcupine?
Post a Comment. A blog which offers book reviews for young people of preschool to high school ages by a children's librarian with decades of experience in reading guidance. Loving both kids and books equally as I do, perhaps helping children and the adults who care about them find good books through this blog is the next best thing to being there.

LaReau's well-paced, pointedly pun-filled text shines a sympathetic light on her lonely protagonist, while Magoon's playful illustrations bring out the best in the spiky hero.
It looks as if Mr. Prickles will never fit in with the cast of furry forest creatures that cavort each night. This makes him feel " Very prickly.
The lonely porcupine does his best to make friends with Raccoon, Chipmunk and Skunk, but he is too different and not "cute," "cuddly" or "playful" like them. Angry at being avoided and ignored, he retires to his stump to glare at them "with very prickly regard. Slowly they become friends and enjoy a nighttime stroll, a splash in the lake, a woodsy snack and a romantic moonrise. When the tormenting trio sets upon them with taunts and teasing, the duo "didn't seem to care," discovering that "[i]t's much nicer being alone with someone else. Magoon's cartoonlike illustrations manage to capture the range of Mr.
Prickles' emotions as he goes from hopeful to annoyed to infuriated to surprisingly happy all within a relatively dark palette. The pair have a history of creating humorous tales that tackle not-so-funny issues Ugly Fish , , and Rabbit and Squirrel: A Tale of War and Peas , Misfits, bullies, educators, parents and kids of all kinds just may learn a thing or two from this nocturnal love story.

Lonesome porcupine Mr. Prickles, unpopular among the other woodland creatures, finds a kindred spirit in his spiny neighbor, Miss Pointypants. Prickles as -hard to get close to,- but eager to be liked, in a forest ruled by furry bullies.
Very prickly. Prickles-s angst gives way to romance when he meets the girl porcupine next door. Thereafter, the clique-s taunts -Well, if it isn-t Spike and Barb- lose their sting, and the porcupines enjoy themselves and -hug, very carefully.
