Book overview: Mr. Biggs is a very curious Sasquatch who has huge feet and an even bigger heart. One day, when he climbs to the tippy top of the tallest tree in all of the forest, he spots a city. He has never seen a city before but it looks like so much fun, so he sets off to discover all of the curious adventures the city has to offer.

Come along with Mr. Biggs on his journey as he tries to shred on a skateboard, jam in a rock band, twirl in a ballet tutu and much, much more.  Will the giant Mr. Biggs find out he fits in the city… or is he just too big?  One thing is for sure… he’ll have tons of fun along the way!

Mr. Biggs in The City is a hilarious and heart-warming story for both the young and young-at-heart, with vividly wacky illustrations which will make you laugh out loud with every turn of the page.

  • I have been trying to find more books for boys. They love monsters, but parents don’t want scary. This sounds like a good one to try, possibly in a storytime with parents.
