Emilie Corbiere is the author of Porcupine's Bad Day, an aboriginal children's storybook based on the adventures of a sometimes grumpy sourpuss of a porcupine.

It was followed by Porcupine Goes to the City, Porc and Beans, and the latest installment, Porcupine and the Powwow.

Each story – written partly in Ojibwe and partly in English for kids aged 4-9 years old – has four new Ojibwe words to learn.
