Skunk and BadgerBook - 2020
Analytical and set-in-his-ways Badger is taken aback when jolly and easygoing Skunk rings the doorbell to announce he's Badger's new roommate. (Badger may have been ignoring his landlord Aunt Lula's letters ...) But as Badger begrudgingly opens up his home-and heart-to Skunk and his unconventional ways, the two characters are irrevocably changed by one another, establishing an odd-couple friendship that is timeless and real. A friendship part Wind in the Willows, part Wallace and Gromit, born in a brownstone in a town that evokes a slightly more urban Hundred Acre Wood via a delightful population of chickens, sheep, stoats, hedgehogs, voles, and philosophical musings, establishes the perfect scenario for illustrations by Caldecott Medal winner (This Is Not My Hat) and Honor illustrator (Extra Yarn, Sam and Dave Dig a Hole) Jon Klassen.
