Summary

Newbery Honor author Amy Timberlake returns with a follow-up to the bestselling, award-winning Skunk and Badger. With illustrations by Caldecott medalist Jon Klassen, this new adventure begins as Skunk and Badger head out on a rock-finding expedition, finding surprises behind every boulder.



Buried in the heart of every animal is a secret treasure. For rock scientist Badger, it's the Spider Eye Agate he found as a cub, stolen years ago by his crafty cousin, Fisher. For Badger's roommate, Skunk, the treasure is Sundays with the New Yak Times Book Review . When an old acquaintance, Mr. G. Hedgehog, announces his plan to come for the Book Review as soon as it thumps on the doorstep, Skunk decides an adventure will solve Badger's problems as well as his own. Surprisingly, Badger agrees. Together

they set off on an agate-finding expedition at Badger's favorite spot on Endless Lake.



But all is not as it seems at Campsite #5. Fisher appears unexpectedly. Then a chicken arrives who seems intent on staying. Something is up!



Indeed!



Secrets, betrayals, lies



. . . and a luminous, late-Jurassic prize.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "For their second adventure, friends Skunk and Badger are off on a rock-hunting expedition with a twofold purpose: first, distract Skunk from the inevitable theft of the book-review section of his Sunday New Yak Times; and, second, help Badger find a new agate for his rock collection. While Badger is an old pro when it comes to hiking and camping, Skunk has never even been in the woods, which sets up plenty of opportunities for hilarity. Once at Campsite #5, they encounter good friend Augusta--a teacup-sized orange chicken--and Badger's bullying cousin, Fisher. When Badger notices Augusta and Skunk holding whispered conversations and then going off together, he decides to follow them, ultimately ending up in a hidden cave that holds a gigantic dinosaur egg preserved in amber. Augusta reveals that chickens have been watching over this egg for generations, and it is now in danger. Enter Cousin Fisher, treasure-stealer extraordinaire. Timberlake creates an irresistible mix of high stakes, laugh-out-loud moments, and truly unexpected plot twists as the friends work together to fend off Cousin Fisher, making for an unforgettable expedition. Klassen's chapter illustrations--black-and-white drawings and earth-toned paintings--further heighten the story's charm and humor. All told, it's a wonderful read. And that New Yak Times Book Review problem? It brings a new friend whom readers will hope to see in future adventures."
