Skunk on a String | Thao Lam
3 posts | 3 read | 1 to read
The highly anticipated wordless picture book from debut author and collage artist Thao Lam "Wordless... colorful... hilarious.""Kirkus," STARRED REVIEW In "Skunk on a String," we meet a skunk who has been tied to the tail of a balloon. Try as he might, the persistent critter can t get anyone to untie him. In this wordless story, he is shooed and swatted through a bustling parade, past the windowpanes of the city s apartment buildings with their diverse, busy inhabitants, then up to the construction cranes high above the city. He floats through the zoo, into traffic, under water, and eventually lands atop a Ferris wheel. When he finally unties himself, the skunk misses the aerial life so he comes up with an inspired way to fly again. Paper collage art in whimsical colors and patterns polka dots, gingham, and florals creates a playful dynamic and brilliantly captures details of urban life, from the legs of a crowd to window boxes, spilled ice cream, and clothing flapping on clotheslines. This heartwarming, highly visual adventure takes a new vantage point on the ordinary and shows the skunk expanding his horizons, overcoming adversity, and, eventually, helping himself."

I came across this book while looking for one with no words for #MayScavengerHunt. It is just delightful. The adorable artwork tells the story of this sweet little skunk who seems to be in a rather sticky predicament. My 4 year old loved it.

I'm going to try to get through these this weekend and do the #MayMakeup thing. I'd like to get in 24 hours, but I won't be fussed if it's less. I picked books that will tick some #MayScavengerHunt boxes, too.

Best part about being a children's librarian? Seeing all the fun new picture books! Here are some great titles for young readers. Skunk on a String should be made into a Pixar short.
