Description

A lively porcupine and chipmunk make a fun-loving duo — and a vibrant addition to the Brand New Readers series.

Things get a bit prickly when Larry the porcupine dances with Rita the chipmunk — or when they engage in beach adventures, bubble-blowing, or bottle tossing at the fair. Meet a brand-new pair in these four funny tales with a final twist, perfectly suited for fi rst-time readers.
