Redeker, Kent and Illustrated by Staake, Bob Don’t Squish the Sasquatch! 40 pgs. Hyperion Book CH (, 2012. $10.36. (Rating: G)
Senor Sasquatch has only one request when he gets on the bus, he doesn’t want to be squished. So the bus driver warns each new passenger “Don’t Squish the Sasquatch!” This includes colorful passengers like Mr. Octo-Rhino and Miss Goat Whale. But the bus is getting really crowded…..
This is in my top favorite books of all time list. “Don’t Squish the Sasquatch” has been stuck in my mind, like a favorite song from the radio. I absolutely can’t wait to read this with students. It’s a colorful, fun, silly, and wonderful book with lots of room for student interaction. It is a MUST HAVE for every library!
