Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Roumieu, whose illustrations have appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The Progressive, reveals the hairy hominids's brave struggles with eating disorders, casual cannibalism, and philosophical quandaries ("Me once believe in good. Now, no. World go shit, like Bigfoot screenwriting career."). In a full-color graphic novel, Roumieu offers a portrait of the artist as a young ape that will leave the reader howling with laughter.

Review:

"Brilliantly funny." San Francisco Chronicle

Synopsis:

America’s favorite crypto-zoological hominid is hilariously recast as the modern-day everyman, struggling with eating disorders, casual cannibalism, pop culture, and philosophical quandaries (“Me once believe in good. Now, no. World go shit, just like Bigfoot screenwriting career”).

The book caught me entirely by surprise. It's not just a silly little book....the humor is so intelligent and well-thought out. The author's choice of topics for Bigfoot are so off-the-wall yet so perfect and you just say to yourself "well duh! how else would bigfoot think?"

i definitely recommend this book. not only will you laugh and find yourself immitating bigfoot in recitation, the author's watercolors are amazing and so perfectly done.

This book is amazing and everyone should own it.

"Me used to believe in good, now no more. World go sh**...just like Bigfoot screenwriting career"

This book is so funny I darn neer peed myself. It is a fascinating mix of the mundane and absurd, whether griping about Bigfoot wannabe's like Chewbacca, or complaining about hollywood's passing on his screenplay.

Amazingly, the Bigfoot character seems like a real person, full of pathos and pettiness, as if you're really reading his diary. It is especially effective if read out loud in a gruff monster voice like the SNL character "Frankenstein".

I loaned this book to a good friend and now we just quote little snippets and laugh till we choke.

Bad Wookie. Bad!
