The publisher’s description of Skunk and Badger calls it a mash-up of Wallace and Gromit and Winnie-the-Pooh. The classic odd couple trope gets a fresh (or not-so-fresh) take when Skunk becomes Badger’s new roommate. Zany adventures ensue–the wrong “enemy” gets sprayed, tails “get flipped,” and apparently there are a lot of chickens!
This series from author Amy Timberlake features charming illustrations from Caldecott Award-winner Jon Klassen. The books are perfect for a family read-aloud and for reading alone, curled up with a cookie and a cup of hot chocolate.
