Porcupine loves her life. She's surrounded by friends who listen to her clever stories, and she has a body full of shiny quills that she brushes each night. But one day Porcupine's quills begin to fall out in handfuls-and nothing can be done.

Porcupine's happiness quickly turns to confusion and fear. Sad and embarrassed, Porcupine tries to cover the bald spots and hides out at home. She believes no one can love a porcupine without quills. Then her friend Giraffe stops by with a special gift and a message of acceptance.

Many circumstances leave us feeling alone, embarrassed, and unlovable. Thankfully, God gives us friends and family who love us unconditionally, whether we are bald, hairy, or somewhere in between.

For children ages 4 to 8.
