reading Skunk and Badger, a Mrs. Dalloway's Holiday Recommend.
Winnie-the-Pooh meets Wallace and Gromit in this fresh odd-couple series. Newbery Honor author Amy Timberlake has created an instant classic with illustrations by Caldecott Medalist Jon Klassen (This Is Not My Hat, Pax).
"Amy Timberlake writes with whimsical humor reminiscent of A.A. Milne, Arnold Lobel and Kenneth Grahame, which is reinforced by Jon Klassen's splendid illustrations. [A] charming, funny and touching trilogy opener."--Shelf Awareness

The last thing Badger wants is a roommate, and certainly not Skunk, but since the house does not belong to him he does not have a choice; and soon everything in Badger's quiet and ordered life studying rocks is turned upside down (and where on earth did all the chickens come from)--but after he drives Skunk and his chickens away, Badger starts to miss his roommate and sets out to find him and make amends. A book you'll want to read, reread, and read out loud . . . again and again.
