Sid the Sasquatch: A great new book from a local author that your kiddos will love!


Written by: Jenny

I. Love. Books. Especially, children's books. I actually have a personal goal to write my own someday and have it published!

A local author, Wendy Elliott, was kind enough to send me a copy of her book 'Sid the Sasquatch'. I love LOCAL anything! So, I read it to my kiddos tonight before bed to see what they thought. They loved it! And, as a mom trying to teach my children about kindness and accepting everyone -- this book was right up my alley. 

'Sid the Sasquatch' introduces you to a fun-loving sasquatch as we follow him through his daily adventures. Sid does his best to follow the rules, but things get tricky when he stumbles into a friendship with a human boy. What will become of Sid and his new friend? Will Sid's sasquatch family accept him? Take a journey into the forest with Sid to find out!

Love that Sid's author is from KC. Love that a portion of the proceeds from every book sold will go to Children's Mercy, and to the JDRF Foundation to help find a cure for Type 1 diabetes. 

You can get it on Amazon or at

Way to go, Wendy! You did an awesome job and I wish you the best of luck.
