The Lovesick Skunk book. Read 6 reviews from the world's largest community for readers. Joe Hayes must have had a singular growing up in the Arizona dese. Kids love tall tales.

Verified Purchase. I bought this book on my kindle for a little girl at my daycare who loves skunks. She asks me to read it everyday!
The story is cute and the illustrations are very detailed and eye catching. I wish I had the paper version rather than the kindle version because the illustrations show and then you have a page of text before the next illustration. August 15, - Published on Amazon. Have you ever had a pair of shoes you couldn't bear to part with?
The little boy in The Lovesick Skunk has a pair of black and white sneakers that he loves wearing, and won't quit wearing them no matter how stinky they get. His mother banishes them from the house. Then on a camping trip he and his buddy are awakened by a skunk just outside their tent, showing some amorous interest in the smelly shoes.
After the skunk's attentions, the shoes are too smelly even for this boy to want to wear them. Maybe he'll try those new sneakers after all.
Joe Hayes writes a nostalgic, amusing tale that timelessly captures little boys' attitudes about their clothes and the world around them. Who has time to change clothes when there's a whole world to discover? Antonio Castro L. It's a good-looking skunk that visits the boys' campsite, and the facial expressions, the boys' and the boy's mother's, are perfect.
The Lovesick Skunk is ideal for an entertaining elementary-age story time. The story is engaging, and the illustrations are well-done.
You'll have to find that out for yourself. Joe Hayes is one of America's premier storytellers, a nationally recognized teller of tales—true and tall—from the Hispanic, Native American, and Anglo cultures of the American Southwest. Book Condition: Very Good.
