The Wonderful World of Dylan Weiss

“The books beg the reader to reevaluate their worldview, place within the community, and relationship with nature. These whimsical stories could easily become part of a curriculum or a school reading list for Middle or High School students.”


Tara M Zrinski


“The first two books in the Skunk Tales Trilogy are delightful, adventurous and truly original stories. Reading them, for me, was like experiencing a new world in which I savored moments exploring! Just thinking about them makes me smile!

“For me the most critical of Dylan’s themes is that all creatures and flora are being hurt by human activities which must be stopped if we are to leave a healthy environment for future generations.”

Coming Soon

Quinn’s Quill
Quinn’s Quill is the third installment in the Skunk Tales Trilogy.
Abigail found herself thrust into a new environmental adventure after investigative reporter, Quinn Porcupine, tapped on her door and delivered a frightening message. Unlike her usual messages penned neatly on tree bark, this one was a messy scrawl indicative of Quinn’s hasty rush. And unlike the usual day-to-day woodland news, this message contained an evil foreboding based on an ancient Lakota prophesy about the end of the world.
