In the audio version of this picture book for young readers, a poor little porcupine who just wants a hug asks for one from her forest friends. Everyone is too afraid of her prickly spines to give her the cuddles she needs. Narrator Ramón de Ocampo gives unique voices to Porcupine and her animal companions. Whether exclaiming over the idea of snuggling with a porcupine or carrying on a conversation, de Ocampo's narration embodies the animals in the story. The deceptively simple background music flawlessly enhances the text, giving the listener additional aural clues about the interactions between characters. This is a lovely listen, and would be especially so when accompanied by the print book. A.L.S.M. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2019]
