Egg Marks the Spot: Skunk and Badger 2
Buried in the heart of every animal is a secret treasure. For rock scientist Badger, it''s the Spider Eye Agate he found as a cub, stolen years ago by his crafty cousin, Fisher. For Badger''s roommate, Skunk, the treasure is Sundays with the New Yak Times Book Review. When an old acquaintance, Mr. G. Hedgehog, announces his plan to come for the Book Review as soon as it thumps on the doorstep, Skunk decides an adventure will solve Badger''s problems as well as his own. Surprisingly, Badger agrees. Together they set off on an agate-finding expedition at Badger''s favourite spot on Endless Lake. But all is not as it seems at Campsite #5. Fisher appears unexpectedly. Then a chicken arrives who seems intent on staying. Something is up! Indeed! Secrets, betrayals, lies ... and a luminous, late-Jurassic prize. In a volume that includes full-colour plates and additional black-and-white illustrations by Caldecott medalist Jon Klassen, Newbery Honor author Amy Timberlake takes readers on a second adventure in the new series reviewers have called an instant classic, with comparisons to Frog and Toad, Winnie-the-Pooh, and The Wind in the Willows.

Skunk and Badger: Skunk and Badger 1
No one wants a skunk. They are unwelcome on front stoops. They should not linger in Rock Rooms. Skunks should never, ever be allowed to move in. But Skunk is Badger''s new roommate and there is nothing Badger, who prefers to be left alone to do Important Rock Work, can do about it. Skunk ploughs into Badger''s life and Badger''s life is upended. Tails are flipped. The wrong animal is sprayed. And why-oh-why are there so many chickens? Winnie-the-Pooh meets Wallace & Gromit in a fresh take on a classic odd-couple friendship. Caldecott Medal illustrator Jon Klassen has created some of the most iconic cover images in recent memory, ranging from I Want My Hat Back to Pax, and his distinct humour and eye for design are truly a dream fit for this series. Newbery Honor author Amy Timberlake''s Skunk & Badger, a junior fiction that''s at once hilarious and deeply felt, calls to mind the work of Kate DiCamillo and even A.A. Milne.
