The tribe of Sasquatches are fleeing from a mysterious curse and eventually decide to take refuge in Hugo’s home, The Widdershins Cavern. This tribe of Sasquatches look different from the rest because they all have unicorn horns on their heads! . They’ve escaped from their own cave because it seems it’s haunted. And they know the woods.
Hugo is friendly and always open to meeting new creatures, so he befriends one of these strange squidges named Nobb. Nobb offers to escort Hugo though the North Woods so that Hugo can attend Boone’s birthday party. Hugo had never been inside a human’s house before and he found it to be confusing and somewhat disastrous. Just when it looks like Hugo may have ruined Boone’s birthday, they set out on a mission to solve the troubling curse in Nobb’s cavern.
A fun adventure with the young squatchicorn named Nogg ensues, complete with birthday party and a mystery to solve. This book does its job well as a mellow yet engaging story for beginning readers and the illustrations by Felicita Sala bring the story to life making it fun read for young children.
