The Lovesick Skunk

New Mexico Magazine

"Santa Fean Joe Hayes’s books are always delightful, perhaps because, as I read them, I can almost hear the warm, inviting voice of this professional raconteur, who throughout each summer lends his storytelling talents to the Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian, in Santa Fe. The Lovesick Skunk is no exception. In this 'wild, unbelievable story,' Hayes harks back to his boyhood, when he loved nothing more than his pair of black-and-white tennis shoes. One night, while Hayes is camping out, a skunk sidles up to his smelly old shoes and . . . well, I guess the title tells you the rest. This story celebrates the best of childhood: playful adventures, best friends, and unlikely tales that parents just never understand. Hayes has written more than 20 books for children and young adults, including Dance, Nana, Dance/Baila Nana, Baila (Cinco Puntos Press), a collection of Cuban folk tales that earned the 2009 Aesop Award for Children’s Literature. The Lovesick Skunk is best shared with young readers aged 4 to 8."
