Description

From the creators of Back to School with Bigfoot comes a hilarious story about Bigfoot's little sibling!

Bigfoot has always wanted a little brother and is in for a surprise when his parents return home from the hospital with a sister. He is not happy about this at first, and builds a robot brother to do everything he wanted to do with his little brother. But soon he learns that sisters can be just as cool as brobots... maybe even better.

Praise For Bigfoot Wants a Little Brother

Praise for Back to School with Bigfoot:

"Berger and Brockenbrough cleverly transfer the familiar anxieties of school-bound kids to their hairy hero... A reassuring model for kids big and small." -- Publishers Weekly

"Nicely juxtaposes the negative what-ifs with a great list of positives and just may lead nervous readers to do the same." -- Kirkus Reviews


Praise for The Dinosaur Tooth Fairy:

"Debut picture-book pair Brockenbrough and Sanchez are millions of years ahead of their time." -- Kirkus Reviews

"With clever wordplay and repetitive words to emphasize the Dinosaur Tooth Fairy's emotions, this could be a fun storytime read-aloud for young readers." -- Booklist

"Brockenbrough's text is energetic and amusing... there aren't many books about this important rite of passage, and this one packs in plenty of fun." -- School Library Journal
