The Adventures of Jimmy Skunk introduces this good-natured, slow-moving but canny childhood favorite, who is usually left alone because of his potent "perfume." Like all of Thornton Burgess' characters, Jimmy's natural instincts are completely accurate, but his personality is easily relatable Jimmy thinks the old barrel on top of the hill is a perfect place to nap. But mischievous Peter Rabbit thinks up a way to upend this plan, ensuring Reddy Fox will get the blame and a dose of Jimmy's "perfume." Originally published in 1918, this book tickles another generation of readers as they learn about skunks, opossums, and life in the meadow through the eyes of Jimmy Skunk.
