Everyone knows there are no skunks in Nova Scotia...right? Well, that's what Pamela thinks, until she wakes up one morning to a terrible smell.
Now Pamela stinks, her father stinks, her sister stinks, and her mother stinks. Soon her life stinks—her friends at school won't come near her! And no matter how many skunks her father catches underneath the house, there always seems to be another.
Join Pamela and her family as they confront the odorous onslaught—and watch Pamela slowly start to like the unexpectedly cute creatures.

Brenda Jones is a native of Prince Edward Island and spent the last twelve years roaming the woods and fields gathering and studying the herbs around the Maritimes in order to understand the properties of these amazing plants and to help her with her own health issues. With her background as an artist and illustrator, she began painting each herb in meticulous detail to help in identification, and soon had her own herb garden in her backyard and a cupboard full of tinctures and teas.
