Little Bigfoot, Big City by Jennifer Weiner (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Monday, Oct 23, 2017 at 6:41pm

Alice is a New York girl who never feels like she fits in. Millie is an adventurous Yare (known to humans as Bigfoot), who longs to become a star. After Alice saved Millie’s life several months ago, they became best friends. Now, Millie is determined to audition for her favourite TV show, The Next Stage; a talent competition, to send her to stardom and away from her overprotective Yare tribe. Alice learns that she is not human and decides to discover her true past. Meanwhile, a lonely boy named Jeremy Bigelow is trying once again to prove the existence of Bigfoots to his town, even after an embarrassing attempt. This time, he has help from a mysterious government organization. Millie, Alice, and Jeremy each embark on very different, but exciting journey's across New York.

Little Bigfoot, Big City is the sequel to The Littlest Bigfoot, also by Jennifer Weiner. I liked the suspense of this book. I was always eager to find out what happened next to the characters, which were very realistic. However, it was sometimes confusing and a bit slow. I also liked the author’s descriptions, which were very detailed. I would recommend this book to those who like stories of friendship, fantasy and mystery. Overall, I would give it 3/5 stars.

I think in this book the author is trying to encourage you to be kind to other people. So I think this is a good book because that's a good message the author is trying to tell you. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.

Chomp of the Meat-Eating Vegetables by Troy Cummings (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Saturday, Oct 21, 2017 at 12:19pm

What could be more monstrous than giant vegetable monsters?! In this fourth book, Alexander is still on the look-out for monsters. Now he thinks they're at school . . . The lunch menu is NOT normal - instead of good-for-you meals, there's ice cream and pie every day. His whole class is crying. And his friend Rip goes missing. Alexander must battle giant meat-eating vegetables before the whole town becomes veggie dinner! Filled with humor, suspense, and zany black-and-white illustrations, this book will keep kids turning the pages!

This review is about the book called Chomp of Meat Eating Vegetables and it is in the Notebook of Doom series. I picked it because I like both vegetables and monsters. Alexander is my favourite character because he sensed something was wrong. The book was really well written and illustrated. I recommend this book to kids who love monsters and hate vegetables. I give this book a 5 star rating.
