Spike the Spiky Porcupine

Spike the spiky porcupine lived in Jack’s beanstalk underneath the vine. Whenever, in the morning, he rolled out of bed, he always got covered in bits and bobs from the shed. By eleven o’ clock, he’d picked up two caterpillars, three leaves, four twigs and five mushrooms on his back – soon, Spike could hardly be seen on the track. His spikes were soon covered in all kinds of stuff – he had a feather on his tail and on his nose a little bit of fluff. Spike’s sneeze, rattled the leaves on the trees … he jumped up (and so did his fleas !).

Spike’s Spick and Span Game

Once Spike the Spiky Porcupine had picked up all the rubbish, the whole wood around Jack’s beanstalk was so clean and tidy that the leaves sparkled and shone like new, even the birds twinkled as they flew.
