Skunk and Badger (Skunk and Badger 1): Timberlake, Amy, Klassen, Jon:  9781643750057: Books

Synopsis: 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 with his Important Rock Work, can do about it. Skunk plows into Badger’s life, and Badger’s life is upended. Rocket Potatoes are left in corners. Tails are flipped. The wrong animal is sprayed. And why-oh-why are there so many chickens?

The link to all Zoom meetings will be emailed to all registered participants and will be posted on the library’s calendar event page 24 hours before each event. To register for the event, please visit or call 913-295-8250 x 1013.
