Our September Book of the Month
“Want to get swept up this autumn on a reading journey? If you’re looking for a book with hints of Winnie-the-Pooh meets Wallace and Gromit, this book fits the bill. Good as a satisfying read to yourself but also perfect if you are a parent looking for a book with a classic feel and real warmth to stimulate reading enjoyment. Written by award-winning American author Amy Timberlake, Skunk and Badger is told through a lightly comic story and interspersed with pictures by the inimitable Jon Klasson (illustrator of Pax).
Badger is set in his ways and likes order and routine. Skunk is laid back and a bit unconventional. On paper, they don’t mix! But as each begins to understand the ways of the other, they both learn precious lessons and grow to form an odd-couple relationship. It’s a tale of celebrating differences and appreciating that friendships comes from the most unexpected places, and in all shapes and sizes! A satisfying tale you can stretch across those autumn evenings!”
