Amy Timberlake, author of Skunk and Badger, in conversation with Jim Higgins - a Boswell virtual event
Boswell presents an eventing with Newbery Honoree Amy Timberlake with SKUNK AND BADGER, a fresh take on a classic odd-couple friendship. This event features Timberlake in conversation with Journal Sentinel Arts and Book Editor Jim Higgins.
Of the new book, Kirkus Reviews offers this praise: "A splendid entry in the odd-couple genre, Timberlake's spunky series opener posits that compassion and inner transformation can strengthen the unlikeliest of friendships. It's an approach that gestures toward broader societal conversations (consider the word that prompts Skunk to leave: "vermin") without losing focus on the story's delightful central duo. The use of fragmented sentences, repetition, and onomatopoeia makes for a fun read. Klassen's muted, wistful artwork, meanwhile, invokes sweeping sentiments during key events. Exceptionally sweet."
