A Prickly Problem by Jacqueline Kelly - ESSENTIAL

Kelly, Jacqueline A Prickly Problem 104 pages. Henry Holt (Macmillan) 2018 $16 Content: G.


Calpurnia's dog Ajax is the best bird dog around, but he's certainly not very smart. After chasing a porcupine up a tree and getting a muzzle full of quills, Ajax should have learned his lesson, but when he encounters the porcupine again, Calpurnia may need to practice her vet skills on the family dog. 

I love this series so much! Designed for the much younger reader that the original novel, these short illustrated stories are charming, nostalgic and perfect for a bedtime story or a read along.
