Picture Book Saturday: The Skunk by Mac Barnett


The Skunk


When a skunk first appears in the tuxedoed man's doorway, it's a strange but possibly harmless occurrence. But then the man finds the skunk following him, and the unlikely pair embark on an increasingly frantic chase through the city, from the streets to the opera house to the fairground. What does the skunk want? It's not clear—but soon the man has bought a new house in a new neighborhood to escape the little creature's attention, only to find himself missing something...




The Skunk appears on the 2016-2017 Sunshine State Reader list for young readers this year. To prepare for book clubs, I decided to give it a try. To be honest, I am not entirely sure what gave this book so much appeal when I have read some amazing (and very deep) picture books. At first glance, this is a cute story with comic-like illustrations. The story is fun to read and will make kids giggle. There wasn't much to really make you think or spark a discussion, except for maybe the ending when the man in the tuxedo realizes he misses the skunk.
