More than anything in the world, Little Porcupine wants a part in the Baby in a Manger play. The rest of the little creatures think he's much too funny-looking to even audition. They believe that a "stick ball" like him is only good for cleaning up with the stage crew.
Mama Porcupine tries to comfort her son by telling him that he is the "light of her life", but it's not until the night before Christmas, the very night of the play, that Little Porcupine sees the truth in her words.
In this stunning picture book, with new jacket art by best-selling illustrator Felicia Bond, the poignant tale of Little Porcupine returns with the beautiful message that everyone can be a star.
