Dumpling is a dog of enormous enthusiasm, excellent obedience skills - and no sense of smell. She doesn't care about flowers, garbage, or any of the other smelly things most dogs enjoy. As a result, Dumpling has no dog friends. With a useless nose, she can't relate. Dumpling is lonely . . . until she and her people move to the country. And then the good dog has to choose between obedience and friendship - with a skunk!
Ridiculous, touching, and a little bit disgusting, Skunkdog, with its lively storytelling and comic pictures, will spark conversations and giggles.

"Pierre Pratt's pictures of the befuddled, oblivious Dumpling are utterly endearing." "--The Wall Street Journal " "Children will instantly relate...Important themes of loneliness, tolerance, friendship, and family emerge from this funny story. It will enrich storytime and linger long in the minds of young readers and listeners." --Starred, "School Library Journal""" "The relatively long story has a strong narrative voice with rich language . . Pratt's paintings use bold strokes and deep hues against the background of brilliant green grass, with blurry shadows adding a dreamlike quality to Dumpling's story." "--Kirkus Reviews""" "The lessons about loneliness and the, well, dogged pursuit of companionship are charmingly realized without any heavy-handedness, and young listeners are sure to enjoy the humor in clueless Dumpling's smelly predicament."" --Booklist""" "This newest dog-driven story from Jenkins and Pratt proves again that author and illustrator are brilliantly simpatico." --Starred, " Publishers Weekly""" "Jenkins . . . spins the tale nicely." --"Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books"
