Overview

A reissue of a humorous board book for the very young by the creator of The Rainbow Fish. A cute little hedgehog finds and rejects a series of funny objects until he finally finds another little hedgehog to be his friend. The New York Times praised the original edition, published in 1986, calling it "an unusually appealing board book." And The Horn Book called it "refreshing, because it delves to the realm of emotion for the very young. . . . The book is a fine sample of the growing group of board books that bring a range of experience in book form to the very young."

Children's Literature
A very cute porcupine is searching for a friend. He asks a prickly cactus, chestnut, hairbrush, and pincushion if they are his friend. Finally, he encounters another prickly ball and it turns out to be another porcupine. The back cover shows them contentedly sitting back to back enjoying each other's company. Pfister of Rainbow Fish fame manages to put plenty of humor and expression into these simple pictures. Kids will chuckle at porcupine trying to find another just like him. 2001 (orig. 1986), North-South, $4.95. Ages 2 to 4. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
