A ball of yarn comes between two pals who get all wrapped up in themselves and forget what friendship is about. The artwork is outstanding - hidden details and fuzzy friends with expressive eyes peek out from every corner to draw you into the pages and make you wish you could live in Badger and Porcupine's forest. And the story organically illustrates how cold and lonely life can get when misunderstandings and me first feelings get in the way of looking out for our friends. My absolute favorite picture book of the fall!— Chris Lee
Porcupine and Badger have always been the best of friends, so when Porcupine finds some yarn in the woods, she makes a present for Badger. And when Badger finds yarn, she makes a present for Porcupine. The only problem? It’s the same yarn—and to finish the gift, they each must unravel the other’s creation. An act of kindness turns into a fierce standoff as the friendship frays—can Porcupine and Badger set aside their differences and knit themselves back together?
