Kids Can Press, 2012. Unpaged. Picture book.
Larf is a shy Sasquatch who really likes the fact that nobody believes he exists. He prefers to spend his days in happy seclusion while gardening, jogging, and taking his pet rabbit, Eric, for walks. Then one day he reads about a another Sasquatch who will be making a public appearance in the city. Larf can't help but wonder what it would be like to have someone else around who was just like him. So hoping to meet up with this new Sasquatch, Larf heads into town sporting a bad disguise and packing Eric the rabbit in an up-front baby carrier. That's when his real adventures begin. A fun romp of a story that preschoolers will giggle over again and again. I think Eric the rabbit, with his deer-in-the-headlights blank stare, is by far my favorite part of this adorable story. Check it out for yourself!
