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!
