Recommend the kids book Sasquatch

Postby Nostradamus » 17 Nov 2009, 09:01

Been reading the book with my son. It has bigfoot, DB Cooper, aliens, and a volcano all wrapped up in a single book. What more could you ask for? Haven't gotten to the end so there may be more fun in the book.

For every person who reads this valuable book there are hundreds of naïve souls who would prefer to have their spines tingled by a sensational but worthless potboiler by some hack journalist of the paranormal.

My son is 8 and in 2nd grade. He's an awesome reader. He reads above 6th grade material. He finished this book on his own. I had to read the end myself.

The DB Cooper character in the book jumps out of the plane and lands bad breaking his hip. He is rescued by a Sasquatch and taken to a cabin where he mends. The reason for the hijack was to raise money for a dying son. But while recuperating the son dies and so the hijacker ends up with cash he does not want hanging out with bigfoot on Mt St Helen.

A fun movie I saw this summer was Mil Masquaras vs the Aztec King. It has Mexican wrestler Mil Masquaras as a Renaissance Man helping the US military and the president vanquish a revived Aztec king and his zombie army.

Examples of the dialogue in this film:
"How did you get into professional wrestling?"
"I started out as an astrophysicist, but I was looking for something more meaningful in my life."

"I'm looking forward to reading your new article published in the peer reviewed wrestling journal."

"Mil Masquaras we only have a few hours to save the world. Are you ready?"
"Yes I am Mr President, but first I have to take some publicity photos."
"Of course, I understand."

I saw the movie in a theater packed with grad students. It was hard to hear the film due to the laughter.
