by Mac Barnett

When a skunk first appears in the man’s doorway, it’s a strange but possibly harmless occurrence.
But then the man finds the skunk following him, and the unlikely pair embark on an increasingly frantic chase through the city, from the streets to the opera house to the fairground.

What does the skunk want?

Soon the man has bought a new house in a new neighborhood to escape the creature’s attention, only to find himself missing something. . .
