Description

Porcupine and his friends are back, singing "We Wish You a Merry Christmas!"

 

 

Sing your way through the season with Porcupine, Beaver, Moose and the gang!

 

 

It’s a holiday party at the Porcupine Cafe, and all the animals are there, singing out to Porcupine for their favourite treats. The bears arrive first and demand the traditional figgy pudding. But they are followed by puffins, who request fish; beavers asking for tasty twigs; moose, who demand tasty berries; and squirrels, who lobby for crunchy walnuts.

 

 

What's a frenzied chef to do?

 

 

This fun holiday romp will have kids and adults singing along — and inventing their own verses for their OWN favourite foods!

 

 

Helaine Becker and Werner Zimmermann create even more Christmas merriment and mayhem in this companion to the bestselling A Porcupine in a Pine Tree, Dashing Through the Snow and Deck the Halls.

Praise for Dashing Through the Snow:

 

 

“Parents and teachers will readily sing Becker’s rhymes, and the chorus . . . encourages full listener participation.” — National Reading Campaign

 

 

“Every bit as fun as its predecessor. This book has the potential of engaging the entire family since no one who reads it will be able to refrain from singing out loud.” — Montreal Gazette
