Hugs from Pearl

Friendship, Family, and Finding the Perfect Lipstick

By Paul Schmid; Paul Schmid (Illustrator)

This is Pearl.

Pearl loves to hug.

Hugs are nice . . . except when they come from a porcupine.

Pearl tries and tries to solve her problem and finally fixes it in her very own way.

From the author-artist of A Pet for Petunia comes a prickly new character with a great big heart. Paul Schmid paints Pearl's world with soft and dreamy colors that reflect just how sweet she is beneath her sharp-quilled porcupine exterior.
