Bigfoot Books

I'm a big fan of Graham Roumieu's wonderfully deranged and hilarious Bigfoot memoirs, which show Bigfoot's every day life as a celebrity that very few people ever see.  If you've ever wondered how Bigfoot really feels about Chewbacca, Snuffleupagus, or people who litter (hint: he wants to smash them all), these books are a must read.  Roumieu's Bigfoot is lonely, violent, occasionally profane, and grammarians will gasp at his prose.  I imagine Bigfoot's voice sounds very similar to the Cookie Monster's.  These books are probably best read indoors and away from public areas, as you may receive strange looks from laughing too hard otherwise.  Lest you need anymore incentive to read the book, the author is kinda cute too.  Below are the three titles in the series:
