Porcupette Finds a Family is a story about how a baby porcupine (called a porcupette) finds a new family after losing his mother.
He wants to have an attachment to the bear family he finds, but
is afraid his “bear” mother and “bear” brother and sister will
leave him too. This causes him to act out his fears in ways that jeopardize acceptance from his adopted family. However, with
the understanding and help of Mother Bear, Porcupette finally accepts that he is truly loved and wanted despite, or maybe
because of, his differences.
