When a tribe of Sasquatches flee from a mysterious curse, they take refuge in Hugo’s home, Widdershins Cavern. These new Sasquatches look a bit . . . odd. For example, they all have unicorn horns on their heads! Always open to meeting new creatures, Hugo befriends one of these strange squidges, Nobb. Nobb offers to escort Hugo though the North Woods so that Hugo can attend Boone’s birthday party. Having never been inside a Human house, Hugo finds the experience 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.

In this chapter book, The Squatchicorns by Ellen Potter, the third book in a series about a friendship between a human boy, Boone, and a young Sasquatch, Hugo. As the story opens Hugo is playing in his cave apartment with his sister, when he receives a bottled message in a toy boat in the creek that runs through the cavern. It’s from Boone, inviting him to his birthday party at his cottage in the woods.

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.

NOTE: I received a copy of this book from YA Books Central. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
