No one believes Larf exists, and he likes it that way. Larf, you see, is a sasquatch, the only sasquatch in the world (or so it seems). He has a very pleasant, and very private, life in the woods, where on any given day he might be found jogging, gardening or walking Eric, his pet bunny. But everything changes one morning when Larf discovers that another sasquatch is scheduled to make an appearance in the nearby city of Hunderfitz. What?! That must mean he's not the only sasquatch in the world! Excited by the prospect of having a friend to share hair grooming tips with (and let's face it, teeter-tottering alone is no fun), Larf disguises himself as a city slicker and heads for Hunderfitz -- where he's in for a couple enormous surprises. Ashley Spires once again shows her chops for creating irresistible, quirky characters and laugh-aloud stories and illustrations. Readers with little feet and big feet will fall head over heels for Larf.

Larf is a private, vegetarian introvert who knows he's different from anyone else and likes it that way. He's a Sasquatch, the only one in existence, and that's just fine with him. He's happy with his routine (which he shares with his bunny Eric who might be my favorite illustration in a children's book ever). But one day, he reads about a scheduled Sasquatch appearance in a nearby city and decides to go investigate the idea of meeting someone else like him and possibly making a friend.

This book is funny, quirky, and has a very nice message. Larf is immediately loveable, and the fact that he is totally comfortable and confident in his uniqueness is fantastic. I highly recommend this book.
