No, I'm not referring to the pretty blonde lady on the right. That is Suzanne Selfors, the author of several funny books for kids. Her latest title, The Sasquatch Escape, came out on Tuesday, April 2, 2013. It is the first in a new series, The Imaginary Veterinary.
When Ben Silverstein is sent to the rundown town of Buttonville to spend the summer with his grandfather, he's certain it will be the most boring vacation ever. That is, until his grandfather's cat brings home what looks like . . . a baby dragon? Amazed, Ben enlists the help of Pearl Petal, a local girl with an eye for adventure. They take the wounded dragon to the only veterinarian's office in town -- Dr. Woo's Worm Hospital. But as Ben and Pearl discover once they are inside, Dr. Woo's isn't a worm hospital at all -- it's actually a secret hospital for imaginary creatures. After Ben accidentally leaves the hospital's front door unlocked, a rather large, rather stinky, and very hairy beast escapes into Buttonville. Ben and Pearl are tasked with retrieving the runaway creature, and what started out as an ordinary summer becomes the story of a lifetime. (from the publisher)
When you finish the book, you'll no doubt want to read more books by Suzanne Selfors. You'll probably want to read some informational books about Sasquatch sightings too. This list makes it easy to do both.
