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
