Description


A laugh-out-loud tale about a skunk who longs for a family, perfect for fans of Gaston and Wolfie the Bunny.

Skunk wants to be a dog. EVERYONE loves dogs. And every dog seems to have exactly what he’s looking for: a home and a family.

When Skunk sees a “lost” poster for Max the dog, he wonders if he can pass himself off as the missing pet. He enlists the help of three neighborhood critters—a racoon, a cat, and a squirrel—who train him in the art of being a dog with hilarious results. But, uh-oh, there’s just one thing Skunk didn’t account for . . .

 Will it prevent him from finding a home where he belongs?

  • Perfect for animal lovers.
  • Message of acceptance and found family, plus lots of humor.
  • A gateway graphic novel: speech bubbles and paneled art sprinkled throughout will prime visual literacy.

Praise For…


"Collier’s artwork blends cartoonish humor with moments of tenderness; this is a funny but sweetly told tale of found family." — Kirkus Reviews

"The sweet story of found families is thankfully given a little bite with the squirrel, cat, and racoon trio, who are all clearly living their best human-less lives. Digital illustrations cleverly balance full, saturated spreads with more focused vignettes, giving readers a sense of the comings and goings of the neighborhood while highlighting Skunk and pals’ shenanigans." — Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

"Collier delights readers with a tale about a skunk trying to find a family. Jovial digital illustrations, humorous facial expressions and dialogue add buoyancy to this tender tale." — Booklist

"With Collier’s playful yet adorable pictures to bring the characters to life, this book will find a home among animal lovers and humor fans alike." — School Library Journal
