Larf is a one-of-a-kind creature: the only sasquatch in the world, or so he thinks. But rumor has it that another sasquatch will soon be visiting a nearby village. Is it true? What is this sasquatch like? Will he like Larf? Will he be a vegetarian too, or will he enjoy gardening? What will he think of Larf’s pet rabbit? And worst of all — what if he is actually a she? Larf has his doubts, but cannot rest until he finds out about this other sasquatch for himself!
Ashley Spires has created a character that everyone will adore; Larf is a fun creature that you can’t help but want to hug, despite the fact that he’s 7-feet tall. The story is cute, with many fun details thrown in to entertain readers young and old alike, and Spires’ illustrations are a delight to behold. This is an adorable picture book that children are sure to want to read over and over again. A welcome addition to any book collection.
