No one wants a skunk. They are unwelcome on front stoops. They should not linger in Rock Rooms. Skunks should never, ever be allowed to move in. But Skunk is Badger's new roommate, and there is nothing Badger, who prefers to be left alone to do Important Rock Work, can do about it. Skunk ploughs into Badger's life, and Badger's life is upended. Tails are flipped. The wrong animal is sprayed. And why-oh-why are there so many chickens?

Winnie-the-Pooh meets Wallace & Gromit in a fresh take on a classic odd-couple friendship. Caldecott Medal illustrator Jon Klassen has created some of the most iconic cover images in recent memory, ranging from I Want My Hat Back to Pax, and his distinct humour and eye for design are truly a dream fit for this series. Newbery Honor author Amy Timberlake's Skunk & Badger, a junior fiction that's at once hilarious and deeply felt, calls to mind the work of Kate DiCamillo and even A.A. Milne.
