The picture on the front of the book is of a porcupine, Fluffy, who is sitting on a brick wall under a tree. He must be in the country as there are no houses about. In this picture Fluffy does not look very happy, but we will have to read the whole story to find out why.Now, turn the page and you will find the first feely picture which shows Fluffy. He is a brown porcupine and he is wearing bright yellow dungarees. A porcupine is an animal about the same size as a cat but covered in very spiky prickles all along its body. They feel like very sharp needles or pins, and they protect porcupines from other animals which may want to hurt them.
