Summer in Buttonville is anything but exciting and Ben is about to spend the entire summer there with his grandfather. That means that the most exciting thing that will happen to Ben is having Saturday Pudding Days at the Senior Center. However, that changes when his grandfather’s cat brings home what looks like a baby dragon. With the help of Pearl, a girl from Buttonville, they take the baby dragon to the only veterinarian in town, Dr. Woo’s Worm Hospital. However, when they get there, Ben forgets to close the door and suddenly they find out a big, hairy, smelly sasquatch or bigfoot has escaped. Yep, you heard right, a sasquatch. It seems that there is more to Dr. Woo’s hospital since it is actually a hospital for imaginary animals. Now, Ben and Pearl must try to find the Sasquatch before Buttonville does. Luckily, Sasquatches like chocolate, but will Ben and Pearl be able to find the sasquatch before he destroys Buttonville and is discovered? If anything, Ben’s boring summer has just gotten a lot more interesting.
