Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for Good to be Small:

"The meat of this simple, straightforward story comes through the pictures. Cassidy won the Mr. Christie Award for his art in The Chicken Cat, and the same quirky imagination and attention to detail is obvious here. . . It's through the pictures that we get a strong sense of who the characters are and what they are capable of - and for children the visual is a vital part of understanding the story."
City Parent

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2—A young porcupine out in the woods shows his friend Spike how wonderful their quills are. When Rupert "swings his tail in a mighty arc," he spears wild grapes with a resounding "KAZAAK!" His sharp spines even support him when he flings himself backward into a tree. Unfortunately, the loose quills stay in the bark after he wiggles free and he needs them to frighten away a hungry bear. Spike comes to the rescue, reminding Bear that Rupert's body is full of quills waiting to grow out. With a mighty "KAZAAK!" he sends some juicy grapes Bear's way before scrambling into the top of a tree with his friend. Realistic illustrations are done in acrylics against white backgrounds. The three animals have expressive faces, and the porcupines' quills appear very sharp. The word "KAZAAK!" is frequently repeated in various sizes, sometimes with prickly quills protruding from each letter. Background information discusses the porcupines' habitat and diet and shows how to draw one and identify its tracks. Youngsters will absorb many fascinating facts about these nocturnal animals. Whether read individually or in a group, this story will certainly raise interest in them.—Mary Jean Smith, Southside Elementary School, Lebanon, TN
