Format: Paperback
Zack and Spencer hit Camp Weno-Wanna-Getta-Wedgee in this fun-filled installment. They enjoy the usual camp things: playing pranks, arts and crafts, looking for Bigfoot... LOOKING FOR BIGFOOT! Yes, the boys go out on the prowl. I won't tell you if they find it - that would ruin the story. Let's just say that not everyone believes Zack and Spencer (when have they?)
This one is fun, fun, fun for kids of all ages. And parents might actually enjoy it, too!

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Michael J. Mazza HALL OF FAME on March 28, 2002
Format: Paperback
"The Boy Who Cried Bigfoot" is #19 in the "Zack Files" series of short novels for young readers. The fun story by Dan Greenburg is complemented by the cleverly humorous illustrations of Jack E. Davis. In this installment, New York City schoolboy Zack goes to stay at Camp Weno-wanna-getta-wedgee for some summer fun. But he soon finds that the camp is haunted by talk about Bigfoot, the legendary, hulking hairy humanoid. Is Bigfoot real? Will Zack encounter him?
This book is an enjoyable blend of paranormal thrills, humor, and preteen social politics. There is one aspect of the book which, however, didn't work for me. One character describes the camp's ridiculous trivialization of Native American motifs as "politically incorrect." I got the sense that author Greenburg was trying to have it both ways: on one hand, mock the PC watchdogs, and on the other hand, be PC himself by mocking those those who exploit ethnic motifs in a trivial way. The result left me a bit uneasy. But if you can get past that, you may find "Bigfoot" to be an enjoyable romp.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This early chapter book is well-constructed, with a plot and one subplot (that ties back into the main plot). The plot is that friends Zack and Spencer, away at camp, are convinced there's a Bigfoot in the woods. The subplot is that Zack and Spencer play a trick on two girls, who in turn play a trick on them -- a trick that helps Zack and Spencer find Bigfoot.

The book makes fun of Native American place names: the camp's name is Weno-wanna-getta-wedgee. This is typical of the level of humor used throughout the story. Not for all tastes.
