About the Author:

Helen Lester and Lynn Munsinger have been together through thick and thin since first publishing The Wizard, the Fairy, and the Magic Chicken in 1983. They have collaborated on the hilarious Tacky the Penguin series and many other wildly funny and popular titles, including the award-winning Hooway for Wodney Wat. Helen Lester is a full-time writer who makes her home in New York, and Lynn Munsinger is a full-time illustrator living in Vermont.

LYNN MUNSINGER has illustrated more than ninety books for children. She graduated from Tufts University in Boston and the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, where she majored in illustration. She lives in Connecticut and Vermont.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2 A rather slight story that is elevated by Munsinger's very funny full-color illustrations. After a singularly unfluffy porcupine named Fluffy fails to become what his name describes, he meets a fierce rhinoceros who sees the humor in his own name, Hippo. Of course, the two become fast friends and discover the truth in the saying, "a rose by any other name would smell as sweet." Munsinger's porcupines are as spiney and prickly as ever seen in a picture book to date, and Fluffy's unsuccessful guest for fluffiness is a spine-tickling way for young readers to learn that there are things about each of us that we cannot change no matter how hard we try. A solid addition to any picture book collection and one that will enliven a story hour. Patricia Homer, Lowville School Library, N.Y.
