When Your Porcupine Feels Prickly A214
What will you do if your pelican has bad breath; if your owl doesn't seem so wise; if your shark wears a tacky holiday sweater? WHEN YOUR PORCUPINE FEELS PRICKLY helps you and your animal friends handle life's sticky situations. The poems and artwork are funny, but their intentions are kind and respectful. Children learn from animal mistakes and peculiarities that there are standards for good behavior, but knowing that it's okay to break the rules once in a while is important, too. Laughing about the rules makes them so much more user-friendly!

When your porcupine feels prickly, don't assume that she is sickly. Our vet told us not to worry: porcupines are never furry. Have you ever thought about the right thing to say to a hippo or a shark? Do you know how mice like to celebrate their birthdays? If you meet a ladybug who is really a man-bug, what do you call him? Animals big and small, soft and slippery, wise and weird reveal their oddities in these poems and paintings by Kathy DeZarn Beynette. You'll giggle yourself silly as you discover that it's the peculiar and persnickety things about creatures including humans! that make each of us so fascinating. About that prickly porcupine: you know, some friends just aren't supposed to be furry, and that's okay.
