Summary
On a camping trip with the Junior Rangers, Jay feels like the odd one out. He's determined to get a photo of Bigfoot--but none of his friends believe Bigfoot exists. But if there's no such thing as Bigfoot, why is there a giant footprint? And who is stealing all the snacks?

Meanwhile, Sass the Sasquatch and her curious forest friends are playing practical jokes on the campers. On the last day of camp, disaster strikes when Jay falls into a rushing river. Sass comes out of the woodwork--despite her parents' warnings to stay away from humans!--just in time to save his life. Soon after, Jay and Sass become fast friends, proving that nothing is impossible when it comes to friendship.

Told in ten short chapters, this is an accessible book with an action-packed story line perfect for building early literacy skills, with sequential illustrations that provide contextual clues to the text.



Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "A group of campers is spending a couple nights in the forest, and Jay is determined to see a sasquatch in person. His fellow campers make fun of him, and his troop leader assures him sasquatches aren't real, but he's undaunted. And good thing, too, because Sass, an irrepressible tween Sasquatch, is lurking around the camp, taking their snacks, and gently pranking the campers. Jay's friends are humorously puzzled by Sass' pranks, and while they're never convinced that Jay's right, he gradually comes to realize that he doesn't need to prove anything to anyone. The episodic story unfolds over several chapters of comical, straightforward panels of action. The bold colors and expressive characters, including Sass' cadre of animal friends and her parents (a pair of worrywart brown bears), clearly telegraph the charming emotional turns. Torres and Grand have a great grasp of comedic timing, which is helped along by her fine-lined cartoon figures and visual pacing. With bite-size chapters and an entertaining plot, this is tailor-made for kids just starting to get comfortable with graphic novels.--Hunter, Sarah Copyright 2018 Booklist"
