Get This Book: Simon & Schuster Bigfoot Book for Kids
The Boy Who Cried Bigfoot, written and illustrated by Scott Magoon, gives a twist to the classic Aesop's fable, The Boy Who Cried Wolf. The beautiful artwork with a friendly, fun-loving Bigfoot makes it the perfect picture book for even the youngest Littlefoots.
The story is about a boy named Ben who tricks his family and the townspeople into believing he saw Bigfoot using methods that would make any hoaxer proud. Later on when Bigfoot actually makes an appearance, nobody believes him because of his storytelling past. There is no devouring of sheep in this story though, the Bigfoot is a lovable character and Magoon's illustrations presents him as a friendly forest monster. The story has an ending that is sure to strike a cord with all of the researchers out there and anybody who has had a Bigfoot sighting, because he sets out to prove it.
This fun book presents the classic cautionary tale about the consequences of lying in a fresh new way, giving this book reading value beyond just entertainment. If you have some Littlefoots ages 2-6 running around the house or are a collector of all Bigfoot related books and artwork, I would highly recommend adding this gem to your collection. The Boy Who Cried Bigfoot by Scott Magoon can be purchased as a hardcover book or as an ebook.
