And so concludes the Bigfoot Boy trilogy; a fun romp for the elementary grades. This book picks up the story from the previous books and assumes the reader knows what is going on as it jumps right into the dilemma with our characters, along with the creatures of the forest, as they set out to save the woods. I automatically read anything Hicks draws and this entry in the series is just as exceptionally drawn as I've come to expect from her. Her characters have that distinct style that is recognizably Hick's own and the Bigfoot Boy series gave her a chance to branch out into drawing animals and nature which I've really enjoyed her approach to as well. This story jumps right into the action and never stops until the satisfying ending. A fun ending to a fun series for the 8-12 age group. ( )

"Rufus, Penny and their squirrel friend, Sidney, are eager to recapture the magic totem they lost to the ravens in the previous book. But how? With Rufus no longer in possession of his powers, the trio seems destined to fail. Their luck turns, however, when they learn the local legend of Thunderbird. It seems the mighty bird had created the magic totem decades earlier to be used to ward off developers who wanted to destroy the precious Pacific Northwest forest. Developers who were much like the ones cutting down their trees today! Empowered with a newfound purpose to protect the woods, they finally know just what they have to do to save the day -- and the trees!"--Publisher.… (more)
