An innocent and funny story of friendship and learning to have thoughtfulness for others. Reminds me of the original Winnie The Pooh by A. A. Milne.

Gr 2–5—An odd-couple redux featuring introverted rock collector Badger and extroverted gourmand Skunk. Ideal for
read-alouds and discussion, this title subtly covers myriad topics including homelessness, racism, prejudice,
friendships, and communication. With well-developed, relatable characters and superb illustrations, this deceptively
simple entry is a most welcome series opener.

I've never considered myself a big Western fan, but I loved [b:True Grit|257845|True Grit|Charles Portis|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1328027080s/257845.jpg|1320617] and I sure enjoyed the heck out of this. Georgie is the kind of narrator who is amusing without being aware of it. I imagine her so serious and self-important (like Mattie Ross), but not unlikable.

Weird side note: I read [b:Navigating Early|13642663|Navigating Early|Clare Vanderpool|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1340194887s/13642663.jpg|19257738] recently and I couldn't help but be struck by the similarity in the plots. Both books are about a kid going after a supposedly dead older sibling. Is this going to be a new thing? Like journey-to-find-an-older-sibling-everyone-else-thinks-is-dead is the new vampires? I digress.

Things that make this book great:

1. Georgie's voice. So formal. So authoritative. So unintentionally funny. I mean, the way she sizes up Billy McCabe? Hilarious and touching.

2. The western setting. Is Wisconsin really the West with a capital W? Clearly not today, but it sure sounds like it was in 1871.

3. Pigeon history. Who knew there were ever so many pigeons?

Recommended for ages 10 and up.
