Uncle funky's a Drunk Skunk
A conversation-starter for kids about alcohol
by Dr. John F. Does

Little Skunky loves his Uncle Funky, but it unsettles him when his uncle drinks. One day, after Uncle Funky trips over Little Skunky and yells at him, Mommy Skunky holds Little Skunky on her lap and explains his uncle’s strange and unpredictable behavior. Sometimes Uncle Funky is clumsy, loud, and silly. Sometimes he says means things. Sometimes he’s sad. Uncle Funky’s a Drunk, Skunk is a warm and loving way to introduce young children to the issue of problem drinking by adults. It is an amusing and empowering tool for parents, educators, and counsellors, facilitating open communication about a sensitive issue that most children will encounter as they experience the sometimes confusing and conflicted world of adults.

Children’s author John F. Does has developed a series of ‘healthy conversation-starters’ for young children on a range of sensitive social topics. Dr. Does holds an MBA from the Odette School of Business at the University of Windsor, Ontario and a PhD from the University of the West of England, Bristol. He is an avid reader and a devotedly frustrated golfer. He lives on a few country acres near Plattsville, Ontario, Canada, with his wife, Annette, and daughters, Samantha and Olivia. Other conversation-starter books, by Dr. John F. Does, available now or coming soon: The Weather’s Shitty, Kitty is an adorable exploration of words. Words are not good or bad. They are just words. But how we use our words can sometimes make people feel uncomfortable. Those Hens are Cliquey, Chickie is an action-packed look at youth cliques and bullying. That Salmon’s not so Dumb, Chum warmly explores dyslexia from the perspectives of children, parents and teachers. John F. Does is also the author of “A Play on Words”, a knee-slapping coffee table collection of puns, funny anecdotes, and hilarious misunderstandings. Drop the book open at any page for a lively romp through the inherent vagaries of the English language.
