My son is 14 months old and this is his favorite book. It's actually the only book he will sit through. After I finish reading it he reaches for it so that I can read it to him again. I purchased about 20 copies as party favors for my son's first birthday party. Since giving them out, several of the moms have told me that the book is now their child's favorite book as well. It's a super cute story and the illustrations are fantastic. Such creativity. I highly recommend it.

A fun and adorable book! My grandson first read it at the library and couldn't put it down. He loves having his own copy.

Super cute book! My little guy loves it!! He loves "reading" it to himself. He gets really animated when he "reads" Don't Squish the Sasquatch. It's great!

My kids love, love, love this book. It's been a favorite since the first day we had it. The storyline is fun and fresh (considering how many times I've had to read it) and the illustrations keep their interest. Not only do we own this one, but we regularly give it as a gift.

When I read the opening lines of: "Hello, Mr. Blobule! May I please ride your bus?" I knew I was in for a book of unsurpassed silliness. Don't Squish the Sasquatch is a simple, repetitive, ridiculous, and, therefore, completely brilliant book for beginning readers. And if the repetition starts to get to you as an adult, just look over the child's shoulder to see the equally ridiculous (and, therefore, completely brilliant) illustrations.

I don't know a whole lot about the publishing of children's books, but I think normally a book is written and then the illustrator is found. In this case, however, I tend to think that Kent Redeker knew that Bob Staake would be illustrating his book as he was writing it. I can't think of anyone better suited for bringing Mr. Octo-Rhino to life.
