Sassafras

Illustrated by Ruth Harper

Sassafras is a charming picture book that tells the story of a little skunk who feels ashamed of his "smelly-old, stinky-old, funky-old" self. But as he plays with his many woodland friends--each special and unique--Sassafras discovers he, too, has a rare and special gift all his own.

Ruth Harper was born in England, is a descendent of Sir Christopher Wren, and lived in six countries before coming to America. She has been an art teacher, where she wrote an accredited art curriculum, presented seminars on art education, been a guest illustrator at elementary schools, and has donated many works to fund-raising events.
