Boy who cried bigfoot
THE BOY WHO CRIED BIGFOOT by Scott Magoon. Simon & Schuster, 2012.
A variant of THE BOY WHO CRIED WOLF but with an added layer: the story is actually told from two different points of view, both the boy (Bigfoot calls him Littlefoot) and Bigfoot. Spare text and lots of double page spreads to give the sense of space and size work together in this humorous and surprising retelling.
