The first day of school is right around the corner! And everything is bigger for Bigfoot --- especially back to school problems like getting a haircut, trying on new clothes and finding new shoes that fit! Told from a giant (and very hairy) point of view, BACK TO SCHOOL WITH BIGFOOT deftly tackles the worries kids face as that first day of school draws closer, and ends on a colossal high note!

by Samantha Berger and Dan Santat


See what happens to an ordinary kid on the most lovey-dovey, yuckiest day of the year-Valentine's Day! Cheesy cards, allergy-inducing bouquets, and heart-shaped everything? It's enough to turn anyone into a monster! YECHHHH! But Crankenstein might just find a way to turn his sour day sweet...because even the crankiest monsters have hearts!

by Dan Santat and Samantha Berger

Who is Crankenstein?
He may look like any ordinary boy, but when faced with a rainy day, a melting popsicle, or an early bedtime, one little boy transforms into a mumbling, grumbling Crankenstein! When Crankenstein meets his match in a fellow Crankenstein, the results could be catastrophic-or they could be just what he needs to brighten his day!
