When a young boy finds a shivering skunk snuggled in his bunk bed on a cold autumn night, he is horrified and orders the animal out of his house. After all, skunks are nasty, smelly creatures, right? Frightened, the skunk finds the courage to stand his ground, defending himself and others like him. As these two strangers come to know each other, the boy learns that he must think for himself and not prejudge others. This appealingly illustrated, humorous tale with its important message of tolerance for others identifies -- and discourages -- stereotypic thinking in children.

Solitary, nocturnal creatures, skunks generally go about their business unnoticed. But then there’s that thing they do . . . and oh, boy, when they do it, no one can ignore them. But there’s far more to skunks than their stench, and with this beautifully illustrated entry in Reaktion’s Animal series, Alyce Miller gives these furry scavengers their due. More than being unappreciated, skunks, Miller reveals, have a long history of persecution: killed off as smelly nuisances, they have also been hunted for their fur and, yes, their unique musk, which has found a perhaps unexpected use in perfume. Moving from nature to culture, Miller delves into the long line of skunks that have played parts in literature, film, and folklore, from the antics of Pepe Le Pew to the role of skunks in Native American spiritual beliefs. As growing urban wildlife populations bring humans and skunks ever closer, Miller’s book will help us understand—and appreciate—these beautiful, intriguing, and wholly distinct animals.

These fun songs will help your family or group to create memories that will last a life time. They will provide hours of fun and laughter as you gather around the camp fire each night. You’ll probably even want to keep them handy for a sing-a-long in the car as you travel to the mountains or lake. Sing about the great outdoors as you enjoy the many experiences it provides. From the majestic mountains and clear blue skies to the cute antics of the little chipmunks and squirrels, nothing is as refreshing as being outdoors. Each song is written to familiar tunes you likely know, making this a great song book for scouting troops, youth groups, church camps, and of course, family camp-outs. Your entire family or group will love it!

He helped his friend sell secrets, craft a new plan for recruitment of U.S. soldiers for Hungary, and plan kidnaping, torture, and murder. nine agents and couriers in five countries were eventually convicted of espionage and treason. No actual names are used in this book, without permission, except those connected with the spy ring.
