Skunk wants to be a dog. EVERYONE loves dogs. And every dog seems to have exactly what he's looking for: a home and a family. When Skunk sees a "lost" poster for Max the dog, he wonders if he can pass himself off as the missing pet. He enlists the help of three neighborhood critters--a racoon, a cat, and a squirrel--who train him in the art of being a dog with hilarious results.

School Library Journal - 12/01/2023 PreS-Gr 3—In Collier's latest, readers meet Skunk, who decides he would much rather be a dog. After all, dogs get a lot of love and affection from the owners! When he finds a missing dog poster, Skunk decides to impersonate the dog and join its family. With the help of his three friends (a hilarious trio starring a squirrel, alley cat, and raccoon), Skunk starts training to be a dog. Through a series of entertaining events, Skunk learns that maybe the family he has been searching for has always been right by his side. The good-humored dialogue between Skunk and his friends is really where this book shines. VERDICT With Collier's playful yet adorable pictures to bring the characters to life, this book will find a home among animal lovers and humor fans alike.—Lauren White - Copyright 2023 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
