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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"All of the characters exude their own charm, their own cuteness, even their own cunning. . . . Those qualities will entice young readers to follow the characters in their encounters with wildlife and humans."--Albuquerque Journal


"Like all classic children's literature, the Mesaland Series retains its timeless appeal."--New Mexico Magazine


"With its eye-catching artwork, stories focused on Southwestern animals and mid-century charm, these tales of woodpeckers, jackrabbits, coyotes and other creatures of the desert are sure to make a handsome addition to any child's, or adult collector's, bookshelf."--Weekly Alibi


"[Douglass's] timeless illustrations for the Mesaland Series mix a pulpy comic-book flair he developed as a cartoonist with an attention to line detail and facial and body expressions that he must have developed as an oil painter."--Pasatiempo
