Late one day I hurried home, Stepping through the wood alone. It was deep and dim; I could barely see. But I thought brave thoughts to comfort me. A Young Skunk heads home through the woods—alone. Or maybe not… Could there be robbers, or pirates, or ghosts, or trappers in the woods? And is our hero brave enough to keep away? With bouncy rhymes, charming art, a subtle counting theme, and a surprise ending, this story will entertain and reassure any child who’s ever been afraid.
