Tiny Pin, a pint-sized porcupine, has a frantic, familiar quality in his dialogue -- ""Mommy, Mommy, Mommy, wait for me!"" or ""Mommy, Mommy, Mommy, please take me!"" One day, Tiny Pin timidly slipped the maternal apron strings, made friends in the forest, had a bang-up time at an animal party, and toddled home to his mother who was half-surprised and half-pleased by the surcease from the eternal ""Mommy, Mommy, Mommy!"" The pointed message is carried by an easy-to-read rhyme and the porcupine pictures, all in color, have a quiet gaiety. By the author/illustrator of the enthusiastically received Baby Beebee .
