Gr 3-5 - Erethizon Dorsatum, better known as Ereth, the gruff and grouchy but good hearted porcupine of Avi's Poppy tales, thinks that he has been forgotten on his birthday and sets off in annoyance and disappointment in search of salt, his favorite treat. The nearest salt is located deep in the forest in a cabin occupied by fur hunters. The hunters have set out traps for the animals and Ereth finds Leaper, the Fox, caught in one. He reluctantly promises the dying fox to take care of her three rambunctious kits. Unaware that he is being stalked by Marty the Fisher who is the one creature in the forest that can do him harm, Ereth finds himself embroiled with three energetic and chatty fox kits while waiting for their father, who is nowhere to be found. The story is delightful, heartwarming, and humorous as Ereth's patience is continually taxed and he expounds his nonsense complaints and grumblings. It all adds up to one birthday Ereth will never forget.
