Smelvis is the most adorable skunk ever, but he is different from every other skunk. To begin with, his fur is white with lavender stripes. And he sprays two different scents. If he doesn't like you or is afraid of you, he sprays that awful, stinky skunk smell like every other skunk. BUT...one day he wanders into the backyard of a family with two little children. Everybody is afraid he will spray that stinky smell, especially the cranky neighbor, Mr Piffle, who yells, "Junk that skunk!" But the children love the little skunk. He has never felt loved before. For the first time, he sprays a different scent- the smell of sweet perfume. The family decides to keep him as a pet. But you can never be sure when he will spray that stinky skunk smell or the scent of sweet perfume. He moves in under their house and that's when the fun begins! Meet Smelvis, The Two-Scent Skunk!
Smelvis lives all alone in the woods. Skunks can't bark or climb trees. The only way they can protect themselves is by spraying a terrible smell that drives away people and other critters. One day, Smelvis climbs into the garbage can in somebody's backyard. It belongs to a nice family with two happy children. At first they are afraid that Smelvis will spray them with that stinky smell. The cranky next door neighbor, Mr. Piffle, yells, "Junk that skunk!" The family calls the Animal Rescue Team to take Smelvis away and put him back in the woods. But their children love him so and ask their parents to keep him as a pet. The parents do not know what to do. Then something amazing happens: For the first time in his life, Smelvis feels loved. It makes him so happy that he sprays sweet perfume. Smelvis is tired of living alone so he moves in under their house. Now, you never know for sure whether Smelvis is going to spray you with that stinky skunk smell or the scent of sweet perfume. And that's when the fun begins! Meet Smelvis, The Two-Scent Skunk.
