Yep, Bigfoot is on the mend and right back where he should be - in the spotlight, serving as a role model to young people everywhere. "When young fan come up to Bigfoot and say 'You inspire, want be just like you!,' it warm me heart. Then I reach into pocket, pull out fist size rock and smash they skull in. No want competition. It a tough world, Junior." Sniff. Bigfoot . . . an American success story.

    A very cerebral, erudite, extremely well written and researched memoir that sets the record straight about this grossly misunderstood creature. While somewhat dryly scientific and intellectual, it is at the same time palpably tender and almost sentimental. And if you don't like it, Bigfoot will eat your face.

    We were very nearly tossed out of a restaurant over this book. It was purchased as a gift for a friend, and we were reading it out loud as we celebrated his birthday. I snorted iced tea out my nose.

    I shudder to think of all the harried parents who've mistakenly grabbed this for their children just because it's got cartoons. This is not appropriate for children. It's not appropriate for humans of ANY age. I have to paraphrase Roger Ebert's review of the South Park movie again - I lol'd mao, but wasn't always proud of it.

This is not appropriate for children. It's not appropriate for humans of ANY age. I have to paraphrase Roger Ebert's review of the South Park movie again - I lol'd mao, but wasn't always proud of it. The humor, like Bigfoot himself, is hyperviolent and operates by surprise - it lulls you into being all "oh, how fuzzy and cute" and patronizing, and then it's ripping your face off (whether with humor or its shocking graphic descriptions). As my friend said, "wow, this guy [the author] needs a lot of therapy." The hilarity begins even before the book does -- don't miss the uproarious and yet somewhat touching wordless cartoon on the facing page before the title. I think a lot of its humor value comes from the disconnect between his professed loneliness/emotional vulnerability and his total obliviousness to how his nature & behavior make his relational goals impossible to achieve. So it's a bit sad actually. The hilarity tapers off geometrically as you progress through the book, but overall absolutely worth the time if you want to laugh really hard and be psychologically scarred. ETA I just had the breakthrough revelation that he sounds a lot like Cookie Monster.

    This book was super funny. I loved the illustrations--they had a Ralph Steadman feel to them. Did you know that Bigfoot partied with Emilio Estevez back in the day? And that he's still trying to master the Creepy Tom Cruise Smile? Haha it's so violent and random. This book was super funny. I loved the illustrations--they had a Ralph Steadman feel to them.

    This book is a beautiful pen and ink, mixed media collection of paintings. The WRITING....is a little all over the place - I like the idea of this being Bigfoot’s “come back” book or debut work as an author but the ideas feel scattered. Is he in the woods and undiscovered with birds living in his nose or is he in prison for one of many wrongs or is he a movie star...his public persona is unclear and a little of all of these in this narrative.

The scattered nature of the stories makes it hard to relate to or really grow attached to Bigfoot....beyond the fact that he is Bigfoot and is drawn as a big lumbering PIXAR-Esque mole monster. The intro from Nessie was a nice touch. I also liked the friendship with the man who DARED refer to him as his “Chewbacca”. Overall an enjoyable jaunt but not a must read.

    The celebrity that Bigfoot most resembles is "...Chewbacca, Malcolm Jemal (sic) Warner, meself, cousin It from Addams Family"? Malcolm-Jamal Warner!? Are ya serious? Didn't really appreciate that (supposed) joke. The celebrity that Bigfoot most resembles is "...Chewbacca, Malcolm Jemal (sic) Warner, meself, cousin It from Addams Family"? Malcolm-Jamal Warner!?

    Poorly drawn and crudely lettered this book can only be redeemed by wit. Spoiler alert —there is no wit. There is also no story line, just a series of lame scenarios, many with dated or obscure pop culture references. Feeling generous, plus am mad for Bigfoot, so two stars.

    This book is hilarious. It is quite odd but if you enjoy dark humor and want a good laugh, read it on one sitting. The author you can tell is a “happy, go lucky” guy who makes the story of “Big Foot” even better and really puts you in to the mind of the big guy. I laughed out loud and would recommend for a quick, fun read.

    This was so funny and silly. Some parts were gross. It reminded me a lot of writing comedy sketches, when you have to think about something from a totally different point of view and this book does exactly that! Really opens your imagination and will make you laugh out loud.

    Poor Bigfoot, dealing with celebrity, judgy people and lack of success with the ladies. Both the text and the drawings are hilarious and I had to set it aside more than once so I could stop laughing before I ruptured something. Stupid, gross, ridiculous and absolutely recommended.

    Amazing. The art is a fabulous mix of cute and horrifying, & the book is just long enough for the language not to get irritating. I'll have to find the other 2 now. Amazing.

    Some spots were funny, but then again, some were so-so. This is the sequel to Roumieu's "In Me Own Words" and while I liked it, it wasn't like every page was hilarious. In fact, most of the pages didn't really make me laugh. That isn't to say there weren't moments where I did. I just felt like it could have been funnier in some way. Not sure what way though. The illustrations are great in conveying each section and driving home its story/point. The whole book kind of revolves around Bigfoot tryi Some spots were funny, but then again, some were so-so.

The illustrations are great in conveying each section and driving home its story/point. The whole book kind of revolves around Bigfoot trying to bolster up his image. But being Bigfoot, his attempts somehow always manage to go awry as exampled here: Can You Tell Me How to Get? When first start out audition for a lot of roles, agent at time think I suited for children program because I furry and talk simple. Go in try out for role on new show for public television but get beat out by giant yellow bird. Also try out for role of him friend but beat out by freaky elephant. Get angry and throw chair across set, hit this talentless green guy who also no get lead role. Turn out I break him back with chair and make paralyze. He try sue network. He get miserable from not walk and start live in garbage can. Network offer him role as settlement for lawsuit. Try to get role as garbage man who carry him around but he just scream in terror and hide in can when I around. So unprofessional. *end* Obviously, it's a silly book, but I like silly.

    Writing a review like Big Foot (from Roumieu’s book) is similar to playing scrabble drunk and simultaneously channeling the spirit of Frank Zappa, circa “Don’t Eat the Yellow Snow” (apostrophe, 1974 ). I hope to never to do this again, it was that painful. Great book though. Me Write book write by Graham Roumieu. Very funny! Not children book, not classic literature.

Somewhere in between is book, made for adult and is violent bloody. Book was write from the perspective of Big Foot. Big Foot not stupid, he just bad with language. Actually very smart fellow, use ten dollar words with ease.. very good grasp on theory, very bad in practice. Big Foot, man, myth, legend, he famous once. Use lots of cocaine and drink alcohol with friends like Emilio Estevez. When cash runs out, richy-rich friends go away. Now Big Foot write book to make people know he still around. He concerned that people are forget him from the big 70′s and 80′s notoriety he claimed. He want set record straight with stories and Big Foots needs. Book filled with much artwork by BF as he artist. include sketches and water colors. Watch out for page where he invite neighbor over for a back-rub. He not know own strength. Book also teach you watch out for meeting your hero. He may think you competition and bash fist size rock on you repeatedly… No one like competition. Book very good. Introduction by Mr. Loch Ness Monster, Big Foot childhood friend. -- xpost RawBlurb.com

    This book is amusing enough, but certainly not a children's book! I was surprised that it was in the Children's section of the Library. It is a clever idea, to write from the perspective of big foot. This certainly allows the author to throw any and all rules of grammar out the window!

Perhaps if my expectations had been different I would have enjoyed this book more. It was humorous.
