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 Pearls world with soft and dreamy colors that reflect just how sweet she is beneath her sharp-quilled porcupine exterior.
Paul Schmid's father, grandfather, and great-grandfather were all artists. He is the author and illustrator of A Pet for Petunia, Petunia Goes Wild, and Hugs From Pearl and the illustrator of The Wonder Book by Amy Krouse Rosenthal. In 2010, Paul was awarded a monthlong fellowship with Maurice Sendak. He lives in Seattle with his wife, Linda, and their daughter, Anna.
