Synopsis

Quills by Loyd Tireman, Evelyn Yrisarri

In the sixth book of the Mesaland Series, meet a strange little animal sprinkled with needle-sharp quills-Mr. Porcupine! Whoops, he outsmarts Three-Toes the coyote. Crunch-crunch, he gobbles Rancher Brown's saddle. Ouch, he tangles with Fussy Bluejay. First published between 1943 and 1949 and now available again, the seven books in the Mesaland Series introduce a new generation of readers to the animals and plants of the great Southwest.
