Most Helpful Customer Reviews
LOVE this book! It is so well written and full of humor and emotions, that my 3 and 5 year old were able to understand clearly what was going on. The illustrations are so adorable and help make the story all the better. It is easy to fall in love with Isabel and all of her porcupine friends! -Frequent children's book reader
I picked this book up on a whim at the library and I'm going to order it very soon. I get so tired of reading rhyming and ridiculous animal tales, but was incredibly delighted to stumble upon this funny little yarn. There is adult humor that goes right over my three year old's head as this adorable porcupine plots a way to have balloons at her graduation. I'm always happy to be entertained right along with my kids when I'm reading to them so I thank the author and illustrator for that. The facial expressions on the animals are perfect and the ending is too creative. I only wish there were more children's books of this caliber.
