A porcupine hatches a prickly plan to bring his animal friends together on Valentine's Day in this humorous, heartwarming tale where everyone gets a happily ever after.

Love is in the air this Valentine's Day--or it will be if Porcupine has any say. He uses his quills like Cupid's arrows, hoping to bring the sweet and sentimental spirit of the holiday to all his forest friends. But with every poke that Porcupine gives, he gets a hey , ouch , or yowser in return.

It seems Porcupine's mission isn't turning out quite like he planned, but with some quick thinking he might just be able to save the day...and maybe find a valentine of his very own.
