One morning, when Hollybee finds a brush in a bucket, she decides to take matters into her own hands. Hollybee Hope wants a Prickly Coat is a story of self acceptance, of learning to see being different as an advantage rather than a disadvantage.
It is also a story of friendship - the type of friendship for which you'd sacrifice something special.
