Porcupine and Badger have always been the best of friends, so when Porcupine finds some yarn in the woods, she makes a present for Badger. And when Badger finds yarn, she makes a present for Porcupine. The only problem? It’s the same yarn ― and to finish the gift, they each must unravel the other’s creation.
An act of kindness turns into a fierce standoff as the friendship frays ― can Porcupine and Badger set aside their differences and knit themselves back together? This charming story of two friends rediscovering their generosity and overcoming conflict highlights the power of compromise and provides a model for forgiveness when friendship goes astray.
"When their projects unravel and they realize that they are sharing one ball, however, the two fall into a snit and proceed to fashion increasingly grand objects for themselves. A hammock, a tent, and a sail for a boat are all knit and purled into creation. But then night falls, the temperature drops, and the two meet on an icy field to exchange sweaters that they have made for each other.... Demidova’s colorful illustrations depict a lovely forest setting and a swirling strand of red yarn." — Kirkus Reviews
