The humor is just absurd enough to make the picture-book set howl along with Hippo and Fluffy.” –New York Times Book Review
Fluffy the porcupine is unhappy with his name: “So he decided to become fluffier.” He climbs a tree and pretends to be a cloud! He even poses as a pillow. (His mother is not pleased when she sits on him.) When Fluffy meets a rhinoceros named Hippo, it puts his plight in perspective…and he makes a friend. This terrific tribute to self-acceptance—complete with the cutest porcupine pictures on the planet—is now part of a fun, 8” x 8” hardcover series about life lessons.
Includes downloadable audio!
Fluffy the porcupine is not very fluffy at all. Despite his best efforts, he cannot seem to live up to his name. Fortunately, Fluffy meets a rhinoceros with an equally unlikely name and the two new friends learn that a name is not an identity. Delightful and infused with humor, Lester's texts and Munsinger's illustrations will entertain and inform a wide audience. Included in each book is a note to parents and educators to help unpack the lessons in these stories. With a new smaller trim size, these books are an excellent value and a joy to read!
