Join two rockin’ punk skunks in a fun story about friendship.Kit and Buzz are BSFs — Best Skunks Forever. Every day they rock out together. But when Kit wants to sing a song about skating and Buzz wants to sing a song about painting, the BSFs get into a HUGE fight! They try to hum, drum, and strum on their own, but it’s all wrong. Will Kit and Buzz find a way to make up?

With plenty of onomatopoeia and alliteration, this title will get readers up out of their seats and rocking. Bright, neon-inspired cartoons lend themselves to the rockin’ and rhythmic text. VERDICT A vibrant, fun, and memorable read for independent readers as well as group sharing.
