Kirkus - If You Wake a Skunk

“The rollicking rhymes and second-person address keep the pages turning and the threat level high in this amusing, educational look at what you should do if you come across a skunk. (In case you don’t already know, the answer is universally to retreat!)…Sure to provoke giggles even for audiences who already know to avoid skunks.”
