Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-When P.U. Zorilla needs work, Mayor Tootlebee does his utmost to find the right duties for the skunk. He tries him as a school-bus driver, a popcorn seller at baseball games, and assistant at a pet shop. But each job ends promptly when P.U. gets upset and the inevitable odorous cloud emerges (to a chorus of "PEE-U-U-U-U!" from surrounding offendees). He ends up as the town's police chief. The funky, somewhat homely art uses a mixture of paint and collage to create a minimalist, almost childlike effect. The characters are set against bright, solid backgrounds that barely contain the action. Dav Pilkey's Dog Breath!: The Horrible Trouble with Hally Tosis (Scholastic, 1994) mines the same territory with more success, although children who can't get enough of gross will enjoy this innocent stinker's escapades.-Marge Loch-Wouters, Menasha Public Library, WI Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
P.U. Zorilla needs a new home. "I am kind, hardworking, generally smell fine, and am good with children and animals. May I come to your town to live?" the skunk inquires of Mayor Tootlebee. The mayor embraces P.U. with open arms and finds him a job driving a school bus. All is well until the children argue, and the skunk's tail begins to lift. " . . . Please don't upset P.U. Zorilla," the mayor implores, but to no avail. Despite the mayor's repeated warnings, P.U. is upset when he works at the pet store and then at the ball park. It looks like P.U.'s attempt at employment is all a foul-smelling mess, when the mayor gives him one more chance: P.U. can clean Mrs. Tootlebee's store after it closes. P.U. is hard at work when thieves break in. Using his spray as a weapon, P.U. foils the robbery and finds his true calling. Kids will laugh out loud at P.U.'s pungent emissions and join in with the repeated refrain. Comical, stylized paint-and-collage illustrations accompany the clever text, resulting in a most malodorous treat. (Picture book. 3-7)
