A cautious porcupine summons the courage to stand up to threats both real and imagined, reassuring readers that they, too, can face their fears.

Like all porcupines, Penny Lu is nearsighted. So while her incredible sense of smell leads her to all sorts of yummy food, predators can be hard to spot. Thankfully, she has another feature that’s quite amazing—her pointy quills! Even when she’s scared, they make her look powerful. But sometimes Penny Lu doesn’t feelpowerful. And she wonders what she’d do if she came face-to-face with the predator she fears the most—THE BEAR! With its rollicking, rhyming text and adorable art, Penny Lu Porcupine will charm readers and reassure them that they too can face their fears.

Penny Lu Porcupine is the story of a porcupine and shares that they can't see very well unless the object is appropriately in front of them. Porcupines have to ever be on guard for predators, but they have a natural armor of 30,000 razor-sharp quills that will surely stop any enemy from taking a bit out of the porcupine. Penny Lu sees a few things in the dark. They could be predators, so she goes on the defense and roars that she is strong and brave. Little kids face many fears, and though they don't have 30,000 razor-sharp quills to defend with, they can be confident and courageous when scared. Penny Lu finally has to face a giant predator for real, and for a moment, she is so frightened she forgets how to defend herself, but at the last moment, she does. Penny Lu reminds us we can be scared, but when it comes down to it, we can overcome the fear.
