Pamela is a normal girl from a normal family living a normal life, until one cold morning when she wakes up to the awful smell of skunk. But there aren't any skunks in Nova Scotia‚Ķ right? Well, the nose knows. Pamela stinks, her father stinks, her sister stinks, and her mother stinks. Soon Pamela's life stinks—her friends at school won't come near her! And no matter how many skunks her father catches underneath the porch, there always seems to be another. Join Pamela and her father as they try their darndest to get rid of the smelly pests, one after the other after the other.
