This book was pretty good. It was filled with a ton of big words that would be hard for the younger grades to read. It is also a bit of a tongue twister, which also makes it hard to read! I think the reason this book was written was for entertainment! There weren't many lessons in this book, but I liked the silliness of it!

Skunks! is a book students will love. The more gross a book is, the greater love students have for a book. This is a very funny book children find hilarious.

Well done, but I do prefer his book Bugs a tad bit more. Splitting hairs, but to me Bugs are simply more interesting and creepy.
