Noko the porcupine is tired and hungry but no one in the animal village will give him anything to eat. Noko comes up with a clever plan to trick the animals into sharing their food! The book was illustrated and designed to subtly comment on a global issue: how we treat strangers and refugees. Noko is depicted in a style completely different to the rest of animals: he clearly is an outsider always kept at a distance. Hopefully readers will be inspired to think about the way they view and treat strangers seeking help.
