A classic tale about an extraordinary and unlikely animal
friendship. For fans of Paddington Bear and Wallace
From Newbery Honor Author, Amy Timberlake and multi-award
winning illustrator, Jon Klassen comes a beautiful tale of friendship
for readers aged 7+.
Meet Skunk and Badger.
The first time Badger saw Skunk, he thought, 'puny'
and shut the front door.
There was simply too much slick in this Skunk's stripe. Too much
puff in his tail.
Also, there'd been that grin, and the way he'd
stuck out his paw as if he had been looking forward to meeting
Badger knew what to make of that.
He shut the door before the fellow got any ideas . . .
But Skunk is Badger's new roommate, and there is nothing Badger
can do about it.
When Skunk bursts 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?
Skunk and Badger is a beautiful reminder that sometimes opposites
are destined to be the best of friends.
A book you'll want to read again and again, beautifully
illustrated throughout by Jon Klassen.
This is Book 1 in the Skunk and Badger Series. See all Skunk and Badger books here.
