Skunk and Badger (#1 Skunk and Badger)

Author(s): Amy Timberlake

Early readers (5 to 8 years)

When friendly, free-spirited Skunk moves in with solitary rock-scientist Badger, both are forever changed in this whimsical, emotionally rich story from Newbery Honor author Amy Timberlake, illustrated in full-colour and black-and-white pictures by Caldecott Medalist Jon Klassen (This Is Not My Hat, Pax).  

No one wants a skunk. They are unwelcome on front stoops. They should not linger in Rock Rooms. Skunks should never, ever be allowed to move in. But Skunk is Badger's new roommate, and there is nothing Badger, who prefers to be left alone to do Important Rock Work, can do about it. Skunk ploughs into Badger's life, and Badger's life is upended. Tails are flipped. The wrong animal is sprayed. And why-oh-why are there so many chickens?

GOOD BOOKS Staff Review
Badger lives alone. Quiet and content, in his aunt’s house doing his Very Important Rock Work. A knock at the door throws Badger’s life into chaos. Here is skunk, Badger’s VERY unexpected new flatmate. A witty, quirky read about breaking old routines and learning to accept the differences in others. For ages 6-9. - Becks
