Book Review and Giveaway: Mr. Biggs in the City. Ends Nov 4th
Mr. Biggs is a very curious Sasquatch who has huge feet and an even bigger heart. One day, when he climbs to the tippy top of the tallest tree in all of the forest, he spots a city.
My Review: Mr. Biggs in the City by Kevin Bloomfield took me back to the TV series Harry and the Hendersons. The Hendersons owned an unusual pet; a real live Sasquatch named Harry.
Mr. Biggs lives in a cozy little cave in the middle of the forest. He likes to climb trees and take a look at what is going on in the city. Then one day he decided it will be fun to visit the city.
The story is hilarious with wacky illustrations that will keep kids laughing as Mr. Biggs tries to fit in by trying to ride a bike, trying to be a tough policeman, tried to be a rock star playing an electric guitar, he even tried jogging through the park, but he wasn’t having any fun. Mr. Biggs later found out that although he didn’t find fun with the different activates he did, he found fun in the company of children.
So instead of trying to fit in with your environment, schools or anywhere else and be miserable it is okay to just be yourself. I highly recommend this book for the home and classroom reading.
