"Absolutely charming", exclaims Angela as she thrusts this into your hands insisting ALL the 6-9 year-olds in your life need this book!
A fresh take on a classic odd-couple friendship, from Chicago Newbery Honor author Amy Timberlake with full-color and black-and-white illustrations throughout by Caldecott Medalist Jon Klassen.
No one wants a skunk.
They are unwelcome on front stoops. They should not linger in Important Rock Rooms. Skunks should never, ever be allowed to move in. But Skunk is Badger's new roommate, and there is nothing Badger can do about it.
When Skunk plows into Badger's life, everything Badger knows is upended. Tails are flipped. The wrong animal is sprayed. And why-oh-why are there so many chickens?
Newbery Honor author Amy Timberlake spins the first tale in a series about two opposites who need to be friends.
And, don't miss the second adventure (released September 2021), Egg Marks the Spot!
Highly recommended for fans of Winnie-the-Pooh, The Wind in the Willows and other classic animal friendship/family tales.
