The Boy Who Cried Bigfoot!

With Audio Recording

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


A classic tale with a timeless message gets a hugely hilarious twist in this eBook with audio.

He’s big. He’s funny. He’s not real. Or IS he?

This clever twist on “The Boy Who Cried Wolf” is told from the point of view of an unexpected narrator and, through snappy text and lighthearted illustrations, demonstrates the value of telling the truth, the importance of establishing trust, and (of course!) the possibility that a beast you created to get attention can become a real-life friend. Includes audio!

From Publishers Weekly

Dec 24, 2012 – Magoon retells The Boy Who Cried Wolf in a book whose suspenseful, funny pictures and surprise narrator trump its familiar plot. This is the story of my friend Ben and how we first met, says an offstage speaker, referring to a brown-haired boy. Ben liked to tell stories, and readers see him at a forest s edge, alleging Bigfoot sightings to his weary parents, unbelieving sister, and neighborhood friends. Ben s small dog acts as a barometer for Ben s fibs, its expression going from tetchy to angry and then jolted by the crick! of a twig in the woods. I didn t normally talk to a Littlefoot, explains the now-visible narrator, a towering Sasquatch. Ben looks on in shock while his dog merrily joins the creature for a spin on Ben s bike. Magoon (Big Mean Mike) sets events some decades in the past, giving Ben an antique bike, vintage clothing, and old-fashioned camera and video equipment. While there s still an emphasis on the importance of being honest, it s clear that Magoon also sees value in Ben s perseverance and sense of showmanship. Ages 4 8.
