NO HUGS FOR PORCUPINE, by Zoe Waring, Running Press/Kids


Embrace what makes you unique and encourage compassionate friendships with Porcupine and Armadillo in this delightful picture book that makes a great gift for Valentine’s Day or for any day when a hug (or kiss) is needed. Poor Porcupine just cannot be hugged-his quills are too spikey! Each night, before settling down to sleep, all of Porcupine’s forest friends hug each other goodnight. All except Porcupine, who feels left out-and grumpy! But when Armadillo shows him what a warm, fuzzy “kiss” is (even for a porcupine!), Porcupine is delighted and cannot wait to show his friends.
With adorable art, Zoe Waring’s story of making the most out of your physical limitations is sure to win hearts. No Hugs for Porcupine is filled with love and friendship, and is the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day, or any day that requires a hug and a kiss.


I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

Short and sweet! Absolutely adorable! Illustrations are excellent and compliment the story perfectly!  Colorful characters that learn and grow at a pace any child will appreciate.  I absolutely loved this book! Zoe Waring did a fantastic job addressing a subject clearly outlined in her book and the solution wonderfully highlighted by fantastic illustrations.

I gave this book:
