Hugs From Pearl (Hardcover)
This is Pearl.
Pearl loves to hug.
Hugs are nice . . . except when they come from a porcupine.
Pearl tries and tries to solve her problem and finally fixes it in her very own way.
From the author-artist of "A Pet for Petunia" comes a prickly new character with a great big heart. Paul Schmid paints Pearl''s world with soft and dreamy colors that reflect just how sweet she is beneath her sharp-quilled porcupine exterior.
Pearl is a little porcupine who adores hugging her friends. However, her quills cause some unpleasant pricking. Determined to find a way to hug others without causing ouchies, Pearl sets off on a small-scale odyssey in search of just the right solution. With soft, enchanting illustrations and a straight-forward text.
