Polly the Polecat by K.A. Mulenga is about an African skunk named Polly who can’t help letting out an unpleasant odor. She tries and tries but no matter what, she still can’t stop that awful smell. Whenever her friends or family are around, they always cry out, "Oh no, Polly’s done it again!’’ Poor Polly doesn’t know what to do until one day she decides to try holding it in. She practices and eventually the stench doesn’t follow her, but that might not be as good an idea as it seems.
Polly the Polecat by K.A. Mulenga is an interesting story that teaches us to love ourselves just the way we are and to be careful of what we wish for. Polly became very self-conscious of her smell because of what others would say and tried hard to make it go away. However, in a time of need, she was unable to use it to defend herself. I think the story is very important for young children as it shows that you shouldn’t always take to heart what others say or try to change yourself as it might not be what you need in life. This story has a wonderful moral to it and colorful illustrations which add to the concept itself. I think this story would help many children who struggle with self-image and their bodies as they grow up as it will teach them to accept the way they are.
