Sasquatch and Squirrel

  • Interest Level: Preschool - Grade 2
  • Reading Level: Grade 2

Strawberry the Sasquatch lives alone deep in the forest.

Most animals are afraid of her, but she doesn’t mind. She’s happy doing all the alone things a sasquatch does—things like hiking and foraging as well as dance moves and logger pranks. Then one day, an extremely friendly squirrel named Nutty shows up. After a series of hilarious mishaps, Strawberry isn’t sure she and Nutty can get along. But thanks to some cloud watching, seed portraits, and stale marshmallows, the two find a way to be friends.
