Mara Wilson gives a charming, thoughtful performance of this contemporary novel. The summer after her college graduation, Isabel is house-sitting and wondering what to do with her life. When she discovers a family of skunks living in the bushes, a tiny world opens up before her. Switching back and forth between Isabel's and the skunks' points of view, this novel delightfully explores uncertainty, relationships, and the beauty of the mundane. Wilson's clear, bright voice suits Isabel's youth and curiosity, and brings warmth and tenderness to the skunks' view of the natural world. As Isabel settles into a routine, she becomes more fascinated with them. Wilson's tender and reflective narration prompts listeners to slow down and be observers.
