All of the parts have been assigned. Porcupine must now be part of the stage crew. He helps design the sets. He keeps the stage clean. But when a disaster threatens the play, will he have the courage to help the classmates that ridiculed him?
I thought this was a sweet story. My heart ached for Porcupine. I think that readers of all ages will relate to the theme of not judging a book by its cover.
Felicia Bond's illustrations are outstanding. Having illustrated such classics as If You Give a Mouse a Cookie and If You Take a Mouse to the Movies, children will instantly recognize her work in the Creature Creek students. Her characters are adorable as well as iconic.
This is a wonderful read for children ages 3-6.
