The weird shadow swept across the sky.

Ben blinked once, twice, three times, just in case an eyelash had drifted onto his eyeball.  But it wasn’t an eyelash.  Something was moving between the clouds—something with an enormous wingspan and a long tail.  Ben pressed his nose to the passenger window.  “Grandpa?  Did you see that?”

Ben is spending the summer at his Grandpa’s house in Buttonville---the most boring town in the world. Boring, that is, until he starts seeing strange things in the sky.  Until his Grandpa’s cat drops what has to be a baby…dragon?...onto his bed.  Until Ben and his new friend, Pearl, decide to visit the new “doctor” who’s set up an office in the abandoned button factory and allow a big, hairy, pudding-loving beast to escape…

Read “Sasquatch Escape” to find out just what’s making a summer in Buttonville the most exciting thing ever!    (New Hampshire Great Stone Face Book Award nominee, 2015)
