Blizz Richards is a great guy, a caring boss, and a loyal friend. Oh, yeah…he’s also a yeti! He’s made it his life’s mission to study cryptids like him, hidden animals who have taken a powerful oath to never be seen by the outside world. So when a photo of Cousin Brian becomes a media sensation, Brian can’t handle the guilt and disappears. But it’s time for the annual Bigfoot family reunion, and it won’t be the same without him. Luckily, Blizz and his devoted team are on the case. Can they find their furry friend before their secret gets out for good?
I loved this book. It is so much fun! Blizz Richards is such a great guy – uh, cryptid. I also liked all of the other characters, except for the villain. I wish I could go to the Bigfoot family reunion!
Meet the Bigfeet is an illustrated chapter book – the humorous illustrations really added to the book. It would be a good choice for kids who would like to read Diary of a Wimpy Kid who are a bit too young for it, either because they read at a lower level or aren’t ready for the middle school dynamics.
In no way, shape or form would this book be considered serious literature. That is part of the reason that I liked it so much!
