The world of skunks is a world of warnings. They arch their backs, raise their tails, click their teeth, stomp their feet, and even do "handstands" -- all to say, "Stay away!" And you'd be wise to stay far away -- skunks can spray their stinky scent up to 16 feet (5 meters).

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-Changes to these titles (originally Whitecap, 2001, 1999) have resulted in colorful books with easier-to-read fonts. As with the originals, a full-color photograph faces text and a brief caption. In addition to the updated graphics and new glossaries, there are slight alterations to the texts. Each title highlights the important facts about its subject, including habitat, diet and hunting, communication, and familial roles. Interesting asides embellish the facts and will pique readers' curiosity. Enhance library collections or complete thematic units on these topics by pairing these titles with books such as Jalma Barrett's Coyote (Blackbirch, 2000) or D. M. Souza's Skunks Do More Than Stink (Millbrook, 2002).-Cathie Bashaw Morton, Somers Library, NY Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
