LOVED illustrating Eric Ode's words for this picture book that will appeal to 3 to 7 year olds! We've got Bigfoot, we've got pie, we've got a town full of characters! Here's what some people say:


"Temairik's flat illustrative style, with pops of color, is full of visual wit—not to mention particularly diverse townsfolk. An energetic read-aloud with plenty of repetition and zest."
          — Kirkus Reviews

"This is a fun, imaginative, brightly colored book with a large, bright blue Bigfoot. There are fun things to find on every page: no two of the town’s people are the same. It is well written and illustrated, fun for any kid and any parent who will likely be forced to read it again and again."
          — Portland Book Review 

"A hilarious disaster spoof tale... Bigfoot Does Not Like Birthday Parties dissolves fear in charm and humor to the delight of all young readers."
          — Midwest Book Review

"I can see this book being adored for a long time… the surprise ending will have kiddos grinning from ear to ear."
          — Book Nerd Mommy


Poet Eric Ode has created a hilarious read-aloud about the town of Mossy Pockets and the birthday party the residents throw for reluctant Bigfoot. Internal rhyme gives the growing lists of people, instruments, pies, and animals a delightful momentum. The party excitement builds until it all comes to a pie-smashing disaster.
