Description

Yeti lives alone in a wintery landscape. Well, maybe not quite alone, but no one is brave enough to go near big, scary Yeti. No one apart from Bird, who gets lost on her way south, makes a special friend, and opens up a whole new world for our Yeti…

A funny, brilliantly original book from Nadia Shireen – winner of the UKLA Book Award, shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize and the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize, and mentioned in the Opera Prima category of the international Bologna Ragazzi Prize.

Publisher Review

Lovely illustrations in this picture book ... 10/10 * chopsybaby.com * What a delightful, warm and quirky story - just what we've come to expect from the creator of Good Little Wolf ... This is a wonderful story about seeing beyond our differences that could get children discussing what is important in friendship, as well as how being excluded from groups can make them feel. * ReadingZone website * This is a touching story of an unlikely friendship that has such a beautiful end ... that it gladdens the heart to think that even the grumpiest of the grumps would read this and feel a little tingle of hope that somewhere out there, there truly is a friend for everyone. * Read It Daddy blog * A touching and gentle story about the value of friendship. Stunning illustrations are full of delightful touches and I enjoyed the elements of humour such as Bird's suitcase. * Parents in Touch website * This lovely picture book about friendship is full of character and humour. Award-winning picture book creator Nadia Shireen combines beautifully-designed page spreads, glorious illustrations of forest scenes, and lots of appealing animal characters. The lonely Yeti is an especially brilliant character, and one which is certain to capture children's hearts. * Booktrust *
