Five Stars: This book is hilarious!, January 14, 2003
Reviewer: from New York, NY United States
I bought this book for a 5-year-old, but the adults love it as much as he does. The idea is that skunks are great, and their smell is the best part of them. The rhymes are hip and irreverent and silly, and the drawings bring the book to life. My brother-in-law and I could not stop quoting the line "Skunks with purple mohawks, dude!" to each other--it made us laugh every time. I can't wait to get the other two books by this author (Bugs! and Slugs!).

I would highly recommend this book to anyone with a sense of humor, but I think it would be especially good for kids (especially boys) who think they don't like poetry.

Five Stars: The ideas for a skunk's use get zanier, May 29, 2001
Reviewer: Midwest Book Review from Oregon, WI USA
Artist Lynn Munsinger contributes her hilarious drawings to Greenberg's consideration of the skunk and its possible attributes. Zany and hilarious scenarios include the idea that "skunks make superior sprinklers for watering your grass/Pump their tails several times, spray insects with their gas." The ideas for a skunk's use get zanier as the rollicking rhyme continues throughout.
