The Lovereading4Kids comment
Such an accurate protrayal of the Himalayas would be hard to find in fiction. This wonderful mythical story, epic in scale sees a lost boy befriended and saved by yetis. Incredible emotions are evoked between them as they are each reliant on communication by gesture rather than spoken word. It’s a gem of a book and one that like Escape from Shangri-La will appeal equally to someone of 10 or 110.

Michael Morpurgo is a master storyteller, former Children's Laureate and multi-award winner. This is a fresh reissue of a much-loved story with a beautiful new cover. Escaping from China as the Japanese invade, Ashley and Uncle Sung embark on a perilous journey across the Himalayas. Then Ashley finds himself alone in the hostile mountains, battling for his life. He is just about to give up all hope, when he has a mysterious and terrifying encounter.
