You’ll fall in love with the beautiful world Jane Carey has created in this charming book. Little Skunk becomes the delightful main character, whose curiosity and hunger lure him out of his den for the first time, to follow an intriguing scent, and to encounter many unexpected surprises and challenges on his thrilling journey. First he backs into a Christmas tree on a neighbor’s back patio. Ouch. But Mama Skunk taught him well, and he knows exactly what to do when something surprises or scares him. Just as he lifts his tail, he gleefully notices the source of the wonderful smell - a bowl of old dog food. But right as he discovers it, the family dog discovers him. Amber, the dog is not in the mood for sharing, and is not deterred by Little skunk’s secret weapon. A very stinky pursuit occurs as Amber angrily defends her turf and her food. Little Skunk is terrified as he races to hide somewhere. He cries out for his Mama and regrets leaving his den to follow the enticing smell, instead of following his Mama’s words to stay in the den.

The dog finds Little Skunk just as the family arrives on the scene. The young boy Mac suggests that the family, give the bowl of dog food to Little Skunk as their Christmas present to him. To Little Skunk’s amazement, relief, and delight, the family kindly yields to the Christmas Spirit of Giving and agrees to Mac’s wild suggestion. Everyone is happy.

As the family heads inside for their dinner, Mama Skunk arrives to share the delectable dog food dinner with her son and they celebrate their 1ST Annual Skunk Family Christmas Present Feast.

Both families are pictured on the last pages, enjoying their separate Christmas dinners. And they all had a very, stinky, but very Merry Christmas.
