Little Skunk has become separated from his family at a railway station. He only speaks Skunk, and the other animals are wary of his difference until Bel, a young badger, defies prejudice to help him find his family.

A heart-warming and topical picture book that examines prejudice and tolerance in the first picture book pairing by bestselling children’s book author Malachy Doyle and his illustrator daughter Hannah Doyle.
