I'm Gonna Climb a Mountain in My Patent Leather Shoes by Marilyn Singer

Sadie is all set for her family's rustic camping trip with her favourite patent leather shoes, sparkly suitcase, ballerina skirt and other stylish accessories. But this is no ordinary adventure--she's on the lookout for Bigfoot! Together with her brother, she searches for clues, crawls through a cave and climbs a mountain to find the monster. Using her lasso of pearls and magic gold wand, Sadie proves that girly girls can get their hands dirty and be brave, too! Fun and lyrical text from award-winning author and poet Marilyn Singer is complemented by bright and lively illustrations from Lynne Avril. Sadie's determination and fearlessness will leave readers ready to grab their royal satin capes and head out their own adventure!
