The Skunk with No Funk

By Rebecca Young
Illustrated by Leila Rudge

A hilarious picture book from Rebecca Young with quirky art by much-loved illustrator Leila Rudge.

Woody is not what his family expected. He is a skunk with NO funk. A failure. A flop. An odourless plop. Poor Woody! What is he going to do?

  • "A gorgeous book about how to deal with being different." ABC
  • A quirky and clever picture book with a feel-good ending.

About the author

After studying English and Children’s Literature, Rebecca Young began working in children’s book publishing as an editor. She loves working with words and pictures as both an editor and an author. Rebecca’s first picture book, Button Boy (illustrated by Sue deGennaro), was listed as a Notable Book for the 2012 Children’s Book Council of Australia Awards and has been published internationally. When she is not reading, writing or editing children’s books, Rebecca is watching movies, scribbling lists, pleating dumplings, braving the garden, listening to bluegrass, or rearranging furniture. The Skunk with No Funk (2014) is her first title with Walker Books Australia.

About the illustrator

Leila Rudge was born in England and grew up making mud pies with six siblings and Jeni from number 15. After completing an Illustration Degree at Bath Spa University, Leila headed to Australia to seek her fortune (and the sunshine). Creating tiny characters for books is her favourite part of illustrating. In 2012, her book No Bears (written by Meg McKinlay) was short-listed for the CBCA Picture Book of the Year award in both the Picture Book and Early Childhood categories. Ted was her first picture book as both author and illustrator.
