Lynn Munsinger is the illustrator of many funny and popular books for children, including the stories starring Tacky the Penguin and Wodney Wat. She divides her time between 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.
