Overview

Parents who choose 'Porcupette and Moppet' for its read-aloud pleasure will find this a thoroughly engaging, refreshingly original story, while youngsters with rudimentary reading skills receive a fine lesson in differences, predators and prey, and the value of information. --D. Donovan, Sr. Reviewer, Midwest Book Review A clever lesson about situational awareness and the value of reading a book before acting. --Kirkus Reviews Porcupette loves to spend days alone in the quiet forest reading. But when Moppet, a bumbling predator, comes along with his silly antics and non-stop rambling, Porcupette's sanctuary is turned topsy-turvy. When Moppet finally makes his move, they both get a big surprise that suggests Moppet should read more, and Porcupette should listen more carefully. Alicia Young's delightful art brings even more life and humor to Nadine Poper's fun and educational story about a porcupine, a fisher, and their natural relationship in the wild. Though the tension of predator versus prey is present throughout this ode to reading, Moppet is so charming in his dialogue and in Young's (Mason the Bull and the Magical Christmas Tree, 2018, etc.) pitch-perfect, anthropomorphic cartoon illustrations that readers won't feel too frightened for Porcupette. --Kirkus Reviews Highly recommended both for its leisure value and its pointed insights about different personalities and creatures, Porcupette and Moppet is a lovely picture book that promises lasting attraction and interest to parents and library collections alike. --D. Donovan, Sr. Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
