"I'm lonely and homeless." If you like books that are adventurous, and a little sad, then the book New Kid in Town would be the book you're looking for by Janette Oke. Fuzzle was a skunk that was homeless and really lonely. Fuzzle looks for a home in a big forest. He tried to find a friend, but no one wanted to be his friend.
One event that happened in the story was when Fuzzle was so embittered because he couldn't find a friend. Then he was going through a field looking for a home when he stopped and saw a little fawn with her mother. When Fuzzle came up to them he spoke, "May I be your friend?"
The mother deer answered, "Certainly." So the mom let the little fawn play with the little skunk.
Another scene I liked was the part when he was in the middle of a crisis; he discovered his "creator- given gift" that makes him the hero of the forest.
The skunk was so embittered like the angry roar of a lion because he couldn't find a friend or home. Then when the skunk did find a friend he was so happy he felt like he had just won a million dollars. If you want to know more about the book New Kid in Town then you better pick up the book and start reading it.
