The Bears get a new neighbor . . . with a very strong smell!
When the woodchucks next door move out of their burrow, Sister and Brother Bear can’t wait to meet their new neighbors.

As they help him fix up the old woodchuck burrow, Sister and Brother Bear learn that skunks are no different from anybody else. And they might even find that there are advantages to having a skunk on their side.

CHAPTER 1

"Oh, look!" said Sister Bear. "Our neighbors, the woodchucks, are moving out of their burrow." It was true. The woodchuck family, who had been good quiet neighbors for years, was moving out.

The Bear family waved good-bye to the woodchucks, who were moving to the far edge of Bear Country to be close to Mrs. Chuck's relatives. Sister looked at the empty burrow and wondered who might be moving in.

"Look! Some beavers!" said Brother a couple of days later. Indeed, a beaver couple was looking at the burrow.

"Beavers will make fine neighbors," said Papa. "They are quiet and hardworking, and they are also great engineers. They do wonderful work with dams and streams."

"Yes," agreed the cubs. "Beavers will make very interesting neighbors."

But the empty burrow was a little far from the nearest stream, so the beavers decided not to move in.

A family of bunnies came hopping along in search of a home.

"Oh, boy! Bunnies!" shouted Brother. "We'll have fun playing with bunnies!"

"Oh, yes!" said Sister. "I do hope they move in!"

But the burrow was much too small for the growing bunny family, and they hopped away. Days and weeks passed. The burrow not only remained empty, but it also became overgrown with weeds. A tree was uprooted during a storm and fell across the front door.

Then one day, when the Bear family had pretty much forgotten about the empty burrow, Mama noticed that the "For Sale" sign was covered over with a "Sold" sign.

"I wonder who our new neighbor will be," said the cubs.

They didn't have to wonder long, because it turned out that their new neighbor was ...

—A SKUNK!

"Oh, dear!" said Papa.

"What'll we do?!" cried the cubs.

"What we will do," said calm, cool Mama, "is give our new neighbor a friendly welcome and ask if we can help him in any way."
