The Secret Life of the Skunk (NEW!)
By Laurence Pringle, illustrated by Kate Garchinsky

“Maligned and malodorous…but oh, so interesting. Skunks may not be everyone’s favorites, but they are fascinating. The smoothly written, gentle narrative explores the life of a family from birth in early spring to the kits’ independence in late fall…The endearing digital illustrations, embellished in aqua crayon, have the chalky appearance of oil pastels, which highlights the skunks’ furriness. The primarily dark backgrounds, softened with some bright touches, effectively cast the skunks’ black-and-white coats into sharp relief, the deep shades also reinforcing the striped creatures’ nocturnal existence…” – Kirkus Reviews

“Packed with interesting facts and beautiful digital illustrations, this nonfiction book will entice early readers and student researchers alike. Back matter includes more information about skunks as well as a glossary and a list of additional resources. Young readers will enjoy the lyrical text and warm illustrations…” — School Library Journal
