The creator of the Toot & Puddle series brings us Elmore--the warmhearted porcupine sure to steal the hearts of a new generation of Holly Hobbie fans!

Elmore is a porcupine desperate to make friends. But it is hard to seek closeness with others when you're covered with spikes that shoot off your back every so often. Elmore suffers rejection and heartbreak, but the goodness of his forest community ultimately shines through as the animals find a way to connect with this prickly bundle of love.

Holly Hobbie is the creator of the beloved Toot & Puddle series and now brings us a character for the next generation. Just as charming, funny, and good-hearted as her little pigs, Elmore the porcupine will snuggle and prickle his way securely into the picture-book canon.

This is a sweet story about friendship. But I have a bias against books that make careless errors and pass them on to kids. In this case, I see two problems. First, the story implies that Elmore "shoots" his quills: "It was true, if you got too close you might get prickled. Elmore didn't mean to, it just happened." The illustration shows quills flying off poor Elmore. In fact, quills are not "shot," but they are quite loosely attached. You'd have to be within the physical range of the quills to be prickled.

Second, Elmore makes pens out of his quills, overlooking the fact that a quill pen is made with a feather, not a porcupine quill.

"He'd always had trouble making friends. What was the problem? After all, the 'L' in Elmore's name, his mother once explained, stood for 'love.'"

Poor Elmore the porcupine lives alone, and finds it difficult to make friends because of his sharp quills. The other forest animals find Elmore too "prickly" to be around. A heartwarming tale of how Elmore finds a way to befriend the other animals and fill the forest with great joy. "You are a beautiful porcupine. Our woods are lucky to have you. Your friends"
