Post #1988 – 20060625

My very-literary son-in-law told me about a book that he very much enjoyed as a kid (in the late 70’s) about a fictional family of skunks in upstate New York. He remembers that it was not in the children’s section — but then, it was a dark tale … mom skunk is run over by a car, and some siblings also perish. (Doesn’t really sould like your average kid’s book!) He remembers it as having black & white line drawings. Says he’s been trying to find it. Does the story ring a bell? I’d love to surprise him with it.

Daniel replies:

Rings a bell but very faintly. Maybe someone else will remember it.
