Book Review: I Know Sasquatch

sasquatchI know Sasquatch is about a girl named Jess (and Sasquatch).  She knows that Sasquatch is real because she met him in the woods one day behind her house. She tells the story of how they met and became friends and how he is really nice and doesn’t like photos that make him look mean.  The pictures in the book are pretty cool, they are real photographs from outside with the characters added on top so it is a little bit of reality and fiction all in ones.

About the book

Sasquatch are big, creepy creatures with razor-sharp teeth, long claws, and stinky fur (Ew!). At least, thats what most people think . . . But nobody’s actually ever met one — except Jess Bradley! In this quirky, colorful picture book, Jess describes her first encounter with a Sasquatch and the real beauty inside this Bigfoot beast. (Apparently, he’s a big fan of bubble gum!) You’ll never judge a beast by its stinky fur again!

For ages 4-7.
* Humorous and creative picture book that will activate kids’ imaginations
* Mixed media illustrations make this book unique
* Wide appeal: Answers an age-old question about mythical creatures

Mom assures her that they are all sleeping at their own house and they all have bedtimes too and she is safe to go to sleep. Avery decides she isn’t scared any more and she says goodnight to all the monsters – and they all say goodnight back from their respective homes.

Her parents tell her that if her teacher asks that she take the monkey ear muffs off when she gets to school so is to agree and she says she will, but… The kids all take a lobster boat from the island to get to school.  When Piper gets to her classroom she realizes that she has a NEW teacher – one that doesn’t appreciate the monkey earmuffs.  Piper gets mad and ends up skipping school the next day and sits in the tree in her front yard.  The tree sounds like it is crying and one of her neighbors comes by to realize that there are 2 kittens hiding in the tree.  The neighbor tells Piper the story of the Fairy Tree and how her grandmother used to leave things in it for the Fairies and the fairies would leave her things as well.  Since Piper got 2 kittens from the tree, she decides to give her earmuffs to the tree and names the kittens after the names she had given to the monkey on her earmuffs.

This was a cute book and I loved it since I love fairies. It was a quick read and a great beginning book for Children just learning to read.

Book Review: Piper Green Too Much Good Luck

pipergreenAnother Piper Green Book today – this time Too Much Good Luck.   In this book, Piper thinks that she has too much good luck because 1. her mom is painting her room lime green – the best color 2. She found a perfect strawberry at breakfast (and put it in the fairy tree) 3. There were cinnamon buns on the lobster boat to school 4. She lost her tooth when she bit into the cinnamon bun.  Wondering if too much good luck meant she’d end up having BAD luck… she headed to school.

Once she got to school she found out the class pet had to leave because they were getting a new student and she was allergic.  Piper ended up telling the new student, Camilla, that the teacher was a witch.  After she pulled out an egg and a magic wand from her bag, Camilla freaked out and left the room screaming. Piper got in trouble, of course, and continued her bad luck.

Meanwhile, the fairy tree gave her ONE earring in exchange for her strawberry. She didn’t know why, but her neighbor did tell her that the tree gives you what you need, even though you might not know that you need it.  When she went to apologize to Camilla she was wearing it, and it attracted a parakeet to her shoulder!  Camilla wasn’t allergic to the bird so that became their new school pet!

Another cute book with a nice message.
