Synopsis: 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 favorite 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!
Secrets, betrayals, lies
. . . and a luminous, late-Jurassic prize. (Synopsis from Goodreads)
My Thoughts: Skunk and Badger are back at it again! This series is such a cute read. I love it. Skunk and Badger are such an unlikely pair, but their friendship is one to root for. The do a great job of complementing each other.
Badger needs a little help opening up, and Skunk does a great job of being the animal he needs. This is such a sweet tale of friendship.
I also really enjoyed the little adventure they went on in this story. They are out looking for agate, but of course, they find so much more.
I love the way this book is set up, the illustrations are great. It just has a very nice presentation.
I'd definitely recommend this series if you're looking for something cute. Skunk and Badger are the perfect Odd Couple.
