About The Book
When Ricky Romero befriends a sasquatch he doesn’t expect that six days later he’ll end up resorting to burglary.
Eleven-year-old Ricky is an outdoors enthusiast who enjoys rescuing injured animals. When he discovers a poacher’s trap line, he bribes his older sister Lisa into helping him free the trapped animals. They find a trapped young male sasquatch, its leg so mangled by the trap’s jaws that it can’t walk once freed. Ricky must choose whether to take the critter home or let the poacher kill it.
He convinces Lisa to help him nurse the animal back to health, then release it. Of course, Ricky and Lisa must hide the sasquatch from adults—because grown-ups always mess up. Ricky hones his skills at creative storytelling as the two conspirators dash from one deception to another. Bigfoot becomes Ricky’s friend, but is hard to hide. The boy’s widowed father eventually finds the animal. He hands it over to the district ranger, who cages it inside an alarmed building.
The stakes are raised when Ricky overhears a scientist say he’ll use the child sasquatch as bait to capture the rest of its family. Ricky knows only one way to rescue his imprisoned primate friend and stop the sasquatch-snatchers. He hires the toughest dude at school, an incorrigible burglar nicknamed Rattler. When Rattler sets in motion his master plan, things go wrong. Terribly wrong.
