The hodag explained for kids and adults! What is a hodag and why haven't you ever seen one? Learn all about it in this legend book set introduction to the hodag lumberjack lore of the Northwoods. Happy the Hodag and his sidekick Buddy the Bulldog star in these full color, fully illustrated, rhyming picture books. (2006 + 2007)
I created Happy the Hodag in 2006 to be an inclusive hodag for kids but I also wrote this original set of books to help explain the basics of the hodag legend to new friends as I traveled. People tend to look at you like your nuts when you first explain the history of the hodag (Gene Shepard) and then try to explain what it means now. -Jill. This book set is the perfect introduction to the hodag.
