Join us as we welcome Maine author Ellen Potter to The Briar Patch for a signing of her new book, BIG FOOT AND LITTLE FOOT. In addition to autographing copies of her books, Ellen will be reading from her new book and leading a “Monster Trading Card” workshop where kids can create their own monster cards, just like the ones the Sasquatch kids trade in BIG FOOT AND LITTLE FOOT. Copies of Ellen Potter's books are available for sale at The Briar Patch. Stop in or call (207) 941-0255 to reserve a signed copy.

About BIG FOOT AND LITTLE FOOT:
Hugo is a young Sasquatch who longs for adventure. Boone is young boy who longs to see a Sasquatch. When their worlds collide, they become the unlikeliest pair of best friends.

At the Academy for Curious Squidges, Hugo learns all manner of Sneaking—after all, the most important part of being a Sasquatch is staying hidden from humans. But Hugo dreams of roaming free in the Big Wide World rather than staying cooped up in caves. When he has an unexpected run-in with a young human boy, Hugo seizes the opportunity for a grand adventure. Soon, the two team up to search high and low for mythical beasts, like Ogopogos and Snoot-Nosed Gints. Through discovering these new creatures, together, Big Foot and Little Foot explore the ins and outs of each other’s very different worlds but learn that, deep down, maybe they’re not so different after all.
