Skunk on a String by Thao Lam
When a skunk is spotted among the floats during a parade, panic ensues. After all, skunks are not known for being the life of the party, are they? But poor skunk is not a float – he got caught in the balloon’s string and is unable to steer his balloon. What will happen and who will help him return to earth? This is a wordless picture book so readers have to look carefully at the pictures to get the story. Much of the story is told in skunk’s eyes which make it clear he is not where he intended to be! Skunk eventually saves himself but…wait….what is he up to now? This is a fun “read” for little ones and a great way to get them writing about where their balloon would take them.
