that the story is over he continues the story and to Joe's disappointment the skunk's mother takes him back to the wizard as she is disappointed that the visit has changed his smell she wants him to get his own original smell back so she hits the wizard on the head and forces him to give little skunk his original smell back and she wants that that is the way a skunk should smell little girl Joe
