Booklist Review: "Rufus is back at Grammy's house for the weekend, and he can't wait to spend time with his friend Penny. To track Penny through the woods more easily, Rufus uses his magic totem to transform into Bigfoot Boy, not noticing the two ravens observing him from the branch of a nearby tree. Using Rufus' squirrel friend Sidney as bait, the birds trick him into giving them the totem, and he has to return to his home in the city before he is able to get the totem back. Volume 2 doesn't do much beyond set things up for a big showdown between Rufus, Penny, and the ravens (and possibly the wolves from volume 1) in the next installment. But both Torres' storytelling and Hicks' artwork remain strong, and readers are handed enough action and suspense to keep them interested in finding out what happens when volume 3 is released.--Volin, Eva Copyright 2010 Booklist"
