Skunk Corners has been having some changes and "Big Al", Alice, doesn't know if she likes them much.
Big Al is the school teacher in this small town. And the reason it's called Skunk Corners is obvious-visitors to the town sometimes include the skunks. Phew!

Alice takes Ninja lessons from the Ninja librarian, Tom. Tom runs the library in the small town and does readings for the children of the town.

Al's and Tom's assorted children range in various ages, from 6 yrs. old to about 18 yrs. old. It's q

This is the next year the Ninja Librarian spends in Skunk Corners and again is narrated by the hilarious and interesting first person narrator "Big Al". I've been reading the complete series aloud to my 9 yr old daughter who's really enjoying the collection of short stories that segue into each other. She likes that the school children figure prominently in the action and she likes to wonder about Ninja Tom and the mystery surrounding him. I like how Big Al has a big heart and truly cares for th ...more

*I received this book through a Goodreads giveaway*

Big Al and the rest of the town are trying to learn to cope on their own without him when he returns as mysteriously as he first arrived. Angry skunks, town disasters, life lessons and clues to the Ninja Librarian's training will keep you eagerly readi

Return to Skunk Corners is like curling up in front of a log fire with a cup of cocoa. It's a beautiful story extending our knowledge of Big Al and the Ninja Librarian, focusing on life in the settlement known to one and all, including the skunks, as Skunk Corners.

As before, this is narrated by Big Al, the schoolteacher, who has a lovely languid style, occasionally shooting off into local idioms when things get tough or the kids need clear instructions! Although she doesn't realise it, Big Al is

I have NO IDEA how I managed to miss this sequel to the wonderful Ninja Librarian until now, but I'm very happy to have rectified that.

Another fun read about life in Skunk Corners with the Ninja Librarian. I enjoy seeing how the town is starting to come together and things are a'changin'. The last story was by far my favorite.
