Don't Squish the Sasquatch!

I know what you're thinking .... Sasquatch!  Ok, I'm no mind reader, but I can predict that you and your child will be loving this picture book. This one will pop off the shelf so enjoy the lively selection for Picture Book Friday!

Title:       Don’t Squish the Sasquatch!

Authors: Kent Redeker + Bob Staake

Target:    Preschool - Grade 2

What this book is about:
Senor Sasquatch is waiting for the bus.  When it comes, he gets on, hoping it won’t get too crowded, because it is never good when a sasquatch gets squished.  As a bevy of interesting animals board the bus, Mr. Octo-Rhino and Miss Loch-Ness-Monster-Space Alien, to name a few, our Senor Sasquatch gets very squished, which leads to a big Ka-Blooey!!  The best part is what the animals have to do to fix Senior Sasquatch as they attempt to restore order.

Why I love this book:
First off, the illustrations are so colorful and full of action that they help make this story wonderful.  Kids will love the bevy of unusual animals and the array of funny, fishy, intergalactic kisses needed to revive our sasquatch (see I gave some of the ending bad)  Nice repeating phrases will have kids chanting along.

Who this book is for:
Most kids will really enjoy this book.

Final thoughts:
A graphic delight!
