A Porcupine Named Fluffy

What's in a name? A modern, funny fable about a misnamed porcupine who learns to accept himself, and his name, just as he is.

Fluffy doesn't feel at home in his name. His quills are sharp and pointy. Not fluffy at all! He tries everything he can think of to make himself fluffy, but nothing works. It takes making a new friend--an equally misnamed rhinocerous--to learn to laugh at, and accept, the things he cannot change.
