Publisher's Weekly Review

"The litany of what one can do with the skunks and their spray ranges from droll to kid-pleasingly disgusting, and youngsters will find more than a whiff of humor in the jaunty, fittingly hyperbolic watercolors," said PW. Ages 3-6. (Aug.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved


School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 4-Greenberg continues in the tradition of Slugs (1983) and Bugs (1997, both Little, Brown) with this sensational and sometimes repulsive book about skunks. "First of all, it's valid/To keep a skunk as a pet/And spray your family's salad/In place of a vinaigrette." The accompanying picture shows a child holding a skunk, tail poised over a big bowl of salad on a table. The text goes on to suggest spraying family toothbrushes, wearing skunks as "Really cozy undies," and marrying a skunk. The endless uses of spray will leave some readers laughing and others disgusted. Munsinger's funny illustrations capture all of the creature's interactions with humans and make these stinky situations almost too real. This unusual romp through the animal world is not for those with weak stomachs.-Sheryl L. Shipley, North Central Local Schools, Pioneer, OH (c) Copyright 2010.
