"Porcupines Do Extreme Sports is one of those children’s picture books you will read again and again with your child, each time getting something new and enjoyable out of it. It’s a wonderful book for early childhood education teachers, because a few lesson plan ideas are built right in, so that the teacher can incorporate physical education, science, culture, reading and math skills together. That’s always a big plus in my book, which is just one of many reasons I strongly recommend this book to you."

"I really liked the drawings of this little counting book that gives us a new twist on the old "Ten Little" counting rhyme. Porcupines, yes, but drawn in a very humourous, human fashion--almost like kids with punky hair styles!"
- Orinoco Womble, Goodreads Review
"An adorable counting down book with zany and bold porcupines doing some super cool extreme sports. My son thought it was a really cute book too. I cannot wait to us this book in my classroom. I know that they kids will love seeing the porcupines skydiving, spelunking, windsurfing and so much more! There is so much I could do with this for my Art Through Stories class. I cannot wait for Fall to share it with my students. 5 stars"
