Book Review:    Porcupining: A Prickly Love Story

Related Links

A porcupine named Cushion in a petting zoo has definitely got a problem! Whoever would pet a porcupine? While all of the other animals got plenty of loving attention, Cushion bemoaned his loneliness, singing a sad song in which he was "porcupining for a wife". It doesn't take long before he sets out on a search for a wife. His serenades, unbeknownst to him, are actually rather offensive. He has no luck with the rabbits, the pig, or the beaver. Finally, he meets a similar animal as him, Barb the hedgehog, and his lonely days are over.

This book has a fair dose of both humor and alliteration--sure to woo the intended audience and their parents. Illustrations are lovely. This is a sweet tale that's just right for Valentine's day -- or any day, actually. 

Written by Lisa Wheeler and illustrated by Janie Bynum.
