Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 1-Bigfoot narrates this story of Ben, a boy who "liked to tell stories...a lot." The cartoon youngster in striped pants lies to everyone in town that he's seen Bigfoot in the woods. They gather for a glimpse, but leave in annoyance. Having observed all this, comically round-eyed Bigfoot emerges to claim Ben's bike and dog, knowing no one will believe an accusation of theft. Ben is a "tenacious fellow," and, at book's end, he sets out for the woods with old-fashioned camera equipment to record proof. Luckily, his dog is back to pull the wagon of gear. Digitally rendered illustrations are done in mostly green hues. Bigfoot is charming and goofy-looking with his smiles and manners, asking if he can "borrow" Ben's bike, and the child's expressions are priceless.-Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VAα(c) Copyright 2011.

From Booklist

At first glance Ben seems to be a nice little boy with a bike and a dog, but his flaw is that he likes “to tell stories.” Soon his insistence that he sees Bigfoot begins to wear on his family and friends. He is not above bolstering the stories either—for instance, digging footprints on the edge of the forest. Even his dog gets mad. Then (not unexpectedly, since he is also on the cover) Bigfoot appears. Bigfoot likes Ben and likes Ben’s bike, which prompts Ben to scream, “Bigfoot is stealing my bike!” Alas, like his predecessor who cried wolf, no one comes to help and no one believes him. But the last page finds Ben (with camera in tow) heading into the forest, determined to get proof. The decision to let Bigfoot narrate adds a unique perspective, but it detracts from any surprise. What’s good fun are the full-color Edward Gorey-like illustrations, with all the action happening in the foreground in front of a changing sky—except when Bigfoot comes to fill the page. A neat twist on an old tale. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Ilene Cooper
