Seth the Sasquatch, The Monster's Footprint, comes after the highly praised 2011 release of the first book entitled Seth the Sasquatch.

Seth le Sasquatch, l'empreinte du monstre, fait suite à la version très appréciée du premier livre intitulé Seth le Sasquatch, publié en 2011.

Seth the Sasquatch, 1st book published in 2011
Seth the Sasquatch, 1st book published in 2011

Seth the Sasquatch is the brainchild of Author/Illustrator Martin Deschatelets who created the first book as a gift for his younger brother Seth. The book started with a small print run of 100 copies, which quickly sold out! Due to strong demand, 2 larger print runs quickly followed. Parents and teachers alike have praised the book as a colourful, amusing and engaging tool to teach bilingualism to children.

The book quickly made it's way into stores, schools and was conceptualized as an animated television show with the help of Phil Roman, best known for producing the animation for The Simpsons and King of the Hill, as well as the Garfield and Peanuts animated television specials.

Martin has been hard at work expanding the mythical world of Seth the Sasquatch by creating new stories and adding a special new character for his young sister Chloé in this new book. Much energy has been spent making this project bigger and better than its predecessor! Expect a thrilling story that not only teaches languages, but also the importance of friendship and courage.

Seth le Sasquatch est le fruit de l'auteur / illustrateur Martin Deschatelets, qui a créé le premier livre en guise de cadeau destiné à son jeune frère Seth. Cette œuvre a d’abord connu un tirage restreint de 100 exemplaires, tous rapidement vendus ! En raison de la forte demande, deux autres tirages ont immédiatement suivi. Parents et enseignants ont fait l'éloge du livre, le qualifiant d’outil original, amusant et attachant pour enseigner le français et l’anglais aux enfants.

Le livre a rapidement fait son chemin dans les magasins ainsi que dans les écoles. Avec l’aide de Phil Roman, mieux connu pour la production de l'animation de « Les Simpsons » et « King of the Hill », ainsi que « Garfield » et « Peanuts », promos d'animation pour la télévision, le concept du premier livre de Martin Deschatelets a été retenu dans une émission de télévision animée.

Martin a déployé de nombreux efforts pour élargir le monde mythique de Seth le Sasquatch. En effet, il a créé de toutes nouvelles histoires et a inventé un nouveau personnage pour sa jeune sœur Chloé dans ce deuxième livre. L’auteur a dépensé beaucoup d'énergie afin que ce projet dépasse son premier livre. Attendez-vous à une histoire palpitante qui enseigne non seulement les langues, mais aussi l'importance de l'amitié et du courage.
