Description


Hugo is a young Sasquatch. Boone is a young boy. After an unlikely encounter, they’ve become an even unlikelier pair of best friends. After saving up his Monster Card wrappers, Hugo sends away for a special prize in the mail—a Monster Detector! Using the watchlike device, Hugo quickly spots a monster right in his own cavern. Spooked, but still excited about his prize, Hugo heads to school and finds yet another surprise—his friend Boone! Boone announces he wants to go to Sasquatch school, but no human has ever gone before, and not everyone is as happy about it as Hugo. Boone’s first day of school gets off to a rocky start, but Hugo doesn’t have much time to worry before he makes another monster sighting and takes off after the creature. What follows are even more surprises, ones that have Hugo rethinking what it really means to be a “monster.”

Praise For…


"Sasquatch Hugo and human Boone deal with monsters, stereotypes, and cultural misunderstandings in the follow-up to Big Foot and Little Foot (2018). . .  The sasquatch humor and heroes' earnestness make for a compelling story with natural flow, and the turnabout scenarios in which white Boone operates as a minority among the sasquatches are thoughtfully done. A lovely story of using empathy to work through culture clashes."
 

— Kirkus Reviews

"This satisfying sequel is as relatable as the first, touching on childhood obsessions, worries, and thrills. A fun romp with valuable lessons in friendship and forgiveness."

— Booklist

"Potter has once again penned a winner with this sequel to Big Foot and Little Foot. She includes just the right amount of adventure and excitement to keep children engaged and wanting to know what happens next. Her characters are believable and enchanting. The illustrations are simple but illuminating. VERDICT A successful installment in a delightful series about friendship and embracing differences in others."
