I've tried Google and the local library but no luck. I remember reading this sci-fi book as a kid where an alien comes to earth, takes the form of a skunk. I'm pretty sure the skunk loves peanut butter. There are two kids involved (It's a childrens book - I read it in elementary school) and they eventually learn to read minds, at least a bit. They discover it while one of them is chewing ice and the other is bothered by it.

Anyway, I know it's a long shot, I've been going back and reading a bunch of sci-fi/fantasy books from my childhood and this is one I remember enjoying but cannot, for the life of me, remember what it's called. If you have any ideas at all, that would be great!

Could it be Stinker From Space?

Here's a link with a description of the book, second to the last book on the page:
