About the Book
The Mattigan kids don't believe in things that go bump in the night. After all, their dad is famous for proving such things are impossible. But, when their long-lost Grandpa Joe shows up with his Mysterious Monsters journal, begging for help, the siblings find themselves drawn into a search for Bigfoot.
Along the way, they'll have to deal with meddling babysitters, suspicious psychics, a YouTube disaster, and their furious father. To solve this mystery, Maddie, Max, and Theo must rethink what's possible — and make lots of peanut butter and banana sandwiches.
My family and I live in the Pacific Northwest so of course, we are big fans of Bigfoot. My son wanted to read this as soon as he read the title. He's almost eight and was able to read this story on his own, but we read some parts together. He resonated the most with Max and Theo as they played spy and got into trouble. That gave my kid quite a chuckle. I thought the plot was well-developed and think this book deserves 5 stars!
