In this book there is a skunk that will not stop following the man. Everywhere the man went the skunk would follow no matter what the man tried to do to lose the skunk. One day the skunk was no longer there and the man soon realized that he might have like having the skunk around. This book would be great for lower elementary students and it could be used to teach sequencing and predictions. ( )

That pesky skunk won't stop following the man in the story. Everywhere he went the skunk followed no matter how hard he tried to lose him. This went on and on until one day the skunk wasn't there...Where did he go? Is he okay? Maybe the man liked having the skunk around after all. This book is ideal for lower elementary students. It can be used to teach/practice sequencing events in a story. The silly story is also great for interactive read alouds. ( )

Very cute story about a man being stalked by a skunk. Clever language and writing, and the illustrations are delightful. ( )

The skunk is a story about a man who is being followed by a skunk and he finally loses him in the chain of events during the story. Later realizes that the skunk is not following him anymore, when he tan began to look for the skunk because he realizes that he was his friend. Great for younger students because he prompt creative thinking. ( )
