Porcupine’s Pie is a heartwarming and adorable tale of friendship and reciprocation. Readers follow Porcupine as she selflessly offers other animals any extra ingredients that she has, and they, in turn, come to the rescue when she absently loses her ingredient, making for a satisfying full-circle ending. Endearing illustrations rendered in a muted, yet cheerful, autumn palette complements the text perfectly. There is enough quietness to make this a good pre-naptime book, yet the fun little adventure makes it also a good read for library story-time. A fun bonus is a delicious sounding pie recipe in the back matter.
Sharing and Friendship on Fall Feast Day Porcupine is excited about Fall Feast Day and ready to make her famous cranberry pie. The first step in the recipe is “Wash the berries.” Porcupine sets off for the river. On the way she meets her friends, squirrel, bear, and doe. They too are excited by Fall Feast Day, but each lacks an ingredient to prepare their special dish. Porcupine is a generous friend. She gives each animal the ingredient they need to make their treat. When she reaches the river she looks in her pail – no cranberries. Now she can’t make her special dish. What will she do? This is a delightful story of sharing and friendship; one young children will enjoy. The pictures are perfectly suited to the story. They make the fall theme come alive. One of the best parts is the inclusion of the Friendship Pie recipe. A great activity for you and your child. I received this book from PR by the Book.
