My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy from iRead Book Tours. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Dr. Pete is a porcupine who treats the ailments of all of his neighbors. Each ailment is followed by a hug. When his neighbors ask him to try to stop Jack the cactus’s mean comments, he’s not sure he can help. Is Jack just plain mean, or does he need compassion?

I love this story! It teaches about compassion and kindness and porcupines! At the end of the story there is a page dedicated to “Fun Facts About Porcupines.” Did you know that a group of porcupines is a prickle? There are other fun facts listed that I didn’t know.

The illustrations are amazing and colorful which will keep the attention of young children. There are also some fun words such as prickly and flim flam jam. This is one of those books I see children reading over and over.
