The Boy Who Cried Bigfoot

1 CD. 5 min. Dreamscape Media. 2014. $14.99. ISBN 9781633791237.
K-Gr 1—Adam Verner voices Bigfoot as he narrates the story of how he met his friend Ben. Ben, a young boy who loves to tell stories, has concocted one about meeting Bigfoot. Not surprisingly, nobody believes Ben, and it comes as a shock to Bigfoot himself when the story makes it's way to him, since he doesn't recall ever meeting Ben. This is an entertaining twist on the classic "The Boy Who Cried Wolf." Verner's voice lends itself nicely to the role of Bigfoot, but this audio version would be best listened to while following the picture book (S. & S., 2013) as the descriptions are not enough for listeners to conjure up their own images. Still, the story is creative and teaches the time-tested lesson of telling the truth.—Betsy Davison, Cortland Free Library, NY
