Synopsis

There's nothing quite as sly and stinky as a skunk and nobody quite as imaginative and witty as poet David Greenberg and artist Lynn to bring them to life. In this hilarious book, readers will find skunks that are surprisingly useful - their smelly spray can flavor everything from sundaes to salad dressing and even help water the lawn. And their furry black-and-white coats make everything from comfy slippers to classy tuxedos! Fans of the irresistibly repulsive Slugs and Bugs! will delight in this newest celebration of a creepy creature.

Greenberg's scuzzy humor, on the other hand, never flags: "But the stink of a skunk / I always have thunk / Is more than a sweet bouquet / There are numerous other things (that a punk) / Can do with the heavenly spray."
