Is That a Skunk?
Lucas discovers that a stinky visitor has moved
into his family's backyard.
“They wait for the skunk to leave the doghouse.
But the skunk doesn’t leave. What now?!"
In this charming picture book, Lucas and his family adjust to their new urban wildlife neighbor ... a SKUNK! 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.
Discover lots of fun facts about these sweet-natured animals, including:
•What skunks like to eat
•What kinds of skunks live in North America
•How to make skunk smell go away
