WINNER OF THE STORYMONSTERS APPROVED AWARD 2021
It all started with a huge footprint . . .
Eight-year-old Jimmy and his moose friend Mortimer join the rest of the Trailblazers on a camping trip to earn their Outdoor Adventure badge. What starts out as a team building exercise soon turns into an investigation of a mysterious footprint that can't be described as either animal or human. What kind of creature made it and where did it go? One discovery leads to another, until no one knows what to believe anymore. But one thing is for sure . . . they are not alone.
Take only memories, leave only footprints.
The Bigfoot Mystery is the second book in the Mortimer and Me chapter book series for ages 6-9.
While working on their Outdoor Adventure badge, the Trailblazers find evidence that a large creature with enormous footprints lives in the woods. Despite difficulties getting along with each other, the scouts learn to work as a team, and "aided" by Jimmy's moose friend, Mortimer, solve the mystery -- or do they?

Of course, Mortimer and Jimmy have a few surprises throughout the trip, and the reader is never sure what they will find next. A great story for elementary students, and a fun, exciting read-aloud for teachers.
