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.

RANDALL AND RANDALL
Randall the shrimp is a master at excavation. Randall the fish is his skittish yet happy-go-lucky watchman. This very funny story about one of the sea’s oddest couples illustrates how certain species, in this case a pistol shrimp and a goby, depend on their symbiotic relationship for survival, overcome each other’s quirks, and become the best of friends.
