Editorial Reviews

Review

“Published originally in Italy and newly translated, this quirky self-discovery story features a descriptive, fairy tale–like narrative…Guarducci's vibrant, cartoonish illustrations incorporate some comical touches, like Spiky wearing pink slippers at home, which kids might chuckle over. Spiky’s initial over-the-top maliciousness may potentially upset younger ones, though his transformation ultimately offers a positive message about kindness and what it means to have—and be—a friend.” Booklist

From the Publisher

What happens when our armor falls away, and we can no longer hide our true selves from the world? Spiky explores this question—but in the most delightful way possible! In this book, we meet a creature who rejoices in bullying everyone around him. But when the spikes on his body suddenly fall off, he’s faced with an existential crisis: Who is Spiky, if he is not spiky and very, very bad? Could he maybe be...a friend?

This quirky book, originally published in Italy, has the perfect combination of heart and humor. Author/illustrator Ilaria Guarducci creates a lively anthropomorphized world that oozes with charming details (don’t miss those pink slippers!). And I just love the expressions on Spiky’s face as he goes from bold and prickly to vulnerable and real. As Spiky learns, being a friend means letting other people get close. That can be a little scary at first. But ultimately, it is a very, very good feeling to be a friend, isn’t it?
