When this book arrived, my son was ecstatic. I literally had to wait until the 3rd day to snag it from his hands once he fell asleep so I could read and review it. He wants to be just like Stink Moody and he really wants to catch Bigfoot. Between him and his older sister it's like living in the movie Judy Moody and the NOT Bummer Summer. But both the 4 and 5 year old went through the whole book looking for the photo of the next that Stink flashed during the movie. That being said, it is a great book. Both kids love it and I am sure my son will be carrying it around for weeks asking for it to be read again and again. The book was enjoyable, as an adult and kids love it. It is an interesting mix of legend, fact and speculation. It also has a resource section at the end that with a list of books and websites for more information. It is a great book and fun for all ages.
