Redeker, Kent Don’t Splash the Sasquatch! Illustrated by Bob Staake. PICTURE BOOK. Disney Books, 2016. $16.99. Content: G.
Senor Sasquatch wants to sit by the pool, but not get splashed. Unfortunately several other characters want to take a dip in the pool which results in Senor Sasquatch getting so wet that he becomes “squizzlefied.” It is up to everyone to help de-squizzlefy him.
This is an imaginative and fun book that combines animals and species together to create brand-new creatures. There is an Octo-Rhino, a Goat-Whale and a Loch-Ness-Monster-Space-Alien, for example. The clever combinations make the book fun for young children. The story-line is also entertaining with a good message. It contains the repetition that children love in stories with well-mannered characters who work together in the end to help out a friend. Very cute and very clever children’s book.
PRE-K – ADVISABLE. Reviewer: MM.
