story and pictures by Paul Schmid
It's been a long time since I posted one of my favorite picture books. This lack is mainly due to my laziness in posting rather than a decrease in the picture books we're reading and enjoying. Perfectly Percy is one of my new favorites.
Percy is a porcupine who loves balloons, "but HAPPY little porcupines with balloons are soon SAD little porcupines." Even little ones can anticipate why that's so.
So Percy sets out to think of a solution to his problem, which he does marvelously!
The illustrations are clean and crisp on pastel backgrounds. Percy's perseverance is wonderful. His ingenuity is to be celebrated. We all love this book!
