Sadie The Skunkby Meaghan Fisher
Sadie the skunk thinks she is a cat until a sibling kitten points out Sadie's differences from the rest of the family. When Sadie asks her parents about it, they answer all her questions, telling her they found her as a baby alone in the forest and brought her home. However, they can't answer Sadie's most important question - what kind of an animal is she? To find this out, they take her to wise old Mr. Groundhog whose answer sends her on a series of misadventures. In the end, it is Sadie's most unique characteristic that helps her find her true home.

Sadie loves her family of cats, but she feels and looks so different from them. Her parents reveal the truth–that she was brought into the family when she was found wandering alone. She sets off on a journey to find her family, with the help of Mr. Groundhog. But just what family does she belong to? I love stories that give descriptions of various animals, and this is one of those stories. As Sadie moves from one animal group to another, the young reader learns the difference between them. And little ones will love the ending, I’m sure. The illustrations are absolutely darling, and I’m sure little ones will love the color and vibrancy on each page.
Reviewed by Anne Boling for Readers' Favorite One day Sadie was playing in the woods with a cute little black kitten. The kitten asked Sadie why she was different. Sadie’s legs were short and her tail was long, thick and fluffy. Sadie went to her mother and father and asked them why she was different. They explained to her how they took her in when they found her wandering in the woods. She became one of their own. She wanted to know who she was and her father agreed to help her find out. He told her that Mr. Groundhog would be able to help her. At first Mr. Groundhog told her she was a squirrel, but she couldn’t climb a tree so she couldn’t be a squirrel. Then he told her she was a sparrow, but she didn’t have wings so she couldn’t be a bird. Then he told her she was a beaver, but she didn’t have a large flat tail so she couldn’t be a beaver. I wonder what kind of animal Sadie is? Sadie the Skunk is a cute tale about a skunk, raised by a family of cats, searching for her family. Sadie the Skunk was written by Meaghan Fisher and illustrated by Marla Fair. The illustrations are beautifully done. The colors are bright and eye catching. Sadie the Skunk is an adorable tale. Children will love Sadie and will learn a little about each animal in the story. This 35-page book is sure to appeal to children from preschool to third grade.
Reviewed by Kim Anisi for Readers' Favorite Sadie the Skunk by Meaghan Fisher is the story of a skunk who does not know that she actually is a skunk. Sadie grows up with a group of feral, black cats but soon enough her 'siblings' notice that Sadie is really different from them and that she could not actually be related to them. Sadie goes away to find her real family. She seeks the help of the 'wise' groundhog who sends her to a variety of different animal families, but none of them really seem to be her true family. Will Sadie be able to find her true family and how does she do it? I found Sadie the Skunk a very charming little story. It is a tale of not belonging but wanting to be part of a family. It is a story that shows you should not give up right after the first failure because sometimes it takes a few tries to find your true goal. Sadie's story will be very nice for children because it is beautifully illustrated and makes some important points about life. Even though I am not a child, I did enjoy reading the book and looking at the illustrations. I am sure that children of all ages will like this little book very much and will be able to empathize with Sadie and cheer her on to not give up. And I am also sure that it will make them laugh when they come to the end of the book and see what actually solves the problem!
