A skunk has taken up residence in the backyard! In this charming picture book, Lucas and his family adjust to their urban wildlife neighbor, and along the way they learn all about these surprisingly amiable animals: their favorite things to eat, their preferred places to stay, their friends and enemies, and even how to get rid of their smell. Author and wildlife expert Gary Bogue highlights skunks’ sweet natures (odiferous spray notwithstanding), and full-color illustrations by Chuck Todd add even more information to this fact-packed story.
