P.U. Zorilla is looking for a job, and has many talents, for a skunk. He's good with children, he's good with animals, and he knows a lot about baseball. He's good at many jobs -- but there's one small problem: whenever P.U. Zorilla gets ruffled, he can't control his spray! Which is why everyone must not upset P.U. Zorilla.
But at every job he tries, something does upset P.U. Zorilla, and he has the place skunk-sprayed in no time. But this persistent skunk won't give up--somewhere out there is the perfect job for P.U. Zorilla, and he's determined to find it!

PreSchool-Grade 1–When P.U. Zorilla needs work, Mayor Tootlebee does his utmost to find the right duties for the skunk. He tries him as a school-bus driver, a popcorn seller at baseball games, and assistant at a pet shop. But each job ends promptly when P.U. gets upset and the inevitable odorous cloud emerges (to a chorus of PEE-U-U-U-U! from surrounding offendees). He ends up as the town's police chief. The funky, somewhat homely art uses a mixture of paint and collage to create a minimalist, almost childlike effect. The characters are set against bright, solid backgrounds that barely contain the action. Dav Pilkey's Dog Breath!: The Horrible Trouble with Hally Tosis (Scholastic, 1994) mines the same territory with more success, although children who can't get enough of gross will enjoy this innocent stinker's escapades.–Marge Loch-Wouters, Menasha Public Library, WI
