Sweet Briar's parents think she's the sweetest thing in the whole world. But Sweet Briar is a skunk, and she smells like one too. At school, all the other kids make fun of her. No one wants to play with her at recess, and horrible Wormwood Weasel makes up mean songs about her. How can Sweet Briar show them that there's more to her than just her scent?

Karma Wilson has written a tender and funny read-aloud that young children will want to hear again and again. With glowing illustrations by LeUyen Pham, Sweet Briar is sure to win over many hearts and noses this season.

Illustrated by LeUyen Pharm.
