Bigfoot Mountain by Roderick O’Grady tells the story of Minnie’s life in the mountains and an unexpected discovery that changes her life forever. It’s a fantastic novel for girls and boys aged 8-12.
Minnie and her step-father Dan are struggling to get used to life on Bigfoot Mountain since her mother died. Kaayii and his clan are trying to escape the forest fires, but find their route blocked by a group of holiday homes. When Minnie discovers a set of giant footprints, her world collides unexpectedly with Kaayii’s. Can they help each other and find a way to heal their families?
This is a substantial book that independent readers can really get their teeth into. For slightly less confident readers, it’s perfect for enjoying together with an adult at bedtime.
Whether this is a first foray into environmental fiction or they’re already fans of the genre, this is a novel not to be missed.
