Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 4–7—Rufus is on a weekend visit to his grandma's house in the country. His spirit animal, a squirrel named Sidney, is along for the ride. The story opens with a short recap of Into the Woods (Kids Can, 2012): in an attempt to stop the destruction of a forest, Rufus calls upon Thunderbird for the power to stop the giant trucks. Thunderbird tells Rufus to carve a totem, which he soon learns will turn him into a Sasquatch. Readers are occasionally directed to the first title, which is an effective technique to explain things to children unfamiliar with that book, but the story does not suffer if they miss those references. All is going well for Rufus and his friend Penny as they explore the woods, until ravens begin to appear in trees overhead. They are plotting to steal Rufus's totem, but they have the same goal as he does: to protect the forest. Though the ravens know they cannot take the totem by force, they are confident they can outwit Rufus, Penny, and Sidney. This leads to an adventurous battle over the totem. Hicks's illustrations are done in bold, black lines and rich colors and are sometimes reminiscent of Native Canadian art styles. The story's adventure, magic, and characters will appeal to many readers.—Liz Zylstra, County of Prince Edward Public Library, Picton, Ontario

From Booklist

Rufus is back at Grammy’s house for the weekend, and he can’t wait to spend time with his friend Penny. To track Penny through the woods more easily, Rufus uses his magic totem to transform into Bigfoot Boy, not noticing the two ravens observing him from the branch of a nearby tree. Using Rufus’ squirrel friend Sidney as bait, the birds trick him into giving them the totem, and he has to return to his home in the city before he is able to get the totem back. Volume 2 doesn’t do much beyond set things up for a big showdown between Rufus, Penny, and the ravens (and possibly the wolves from volume 1) in the next installment. But both Torres’ storytelling and Hicks’ artwork remain strong, and readers are handed enough action and suspense to keep them interested in finding out what happens when volume 3 is released. Grades 3-5. --Eva Volin

Format: Paperback
A common term for a group of ravens is an "unkindness" of ravens and in this title there is, of course, a play upon those words as "the bad guys" in this volume are ravens. The very first page is a beautiful piece of art from Hicks, the likes of which we've never seen from her before. It is a nature scene with animals and quite a stunning opening page. Hick's artwork is broadening out in this volume, moving away from her character driven style and incorporating animals, both anthropomorphically and realistically along with nature scenes. A different style for her but she keeps her characters in the form we are used to and pulls off the rest nicely. I enjoyed the first "Bigfoot Boy" volume more than this one. Here the story was simply about the ravens trying to steal Rufus' totem and he and his gang of friends trying to get it back. It's all over the place and actually ends without a resolution on a cliffhanger note with the words "to be continued". I'm not terribly impressed with Torres writing or plotting here but I will read the next volume to see how Hicks art develops in this new turn towards animals and nature.
