Henry and the Yeti

Written by Russell Ayto

Illustrated by Russell Ayto

Henry and the Yeti Synopsis

Henry is sure yetis do exist, and he sets off on an expedition to find one. He has packed everything he needs, including a camera to take photos for evidence. But can he find a yeti? And will anyone believe him when he returns home? A funny story about believing in yourself (and yetis) from a bestselling illustrator who has turned author too. (Titles include The Witch's Children and Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs.) Children will love the twist ending in particular.

Henry and the Yeti Press Reviews

Ayto's picture book is a lesson in how to inject humour, emotion and adventure into pared-down illustrations * Sunday Times, Children's Book of the Week * This is a great bedtime story, full of fun and great illustrations * Burnley Express * We defy you not to be instantly drawn to Henry, a totally adorable protagonist with an unwavering self-belief and a mission to find a yeti * Picture Books Blogger * This is a subtle, understated and solid dose of quietly reassuring encouragement. A lovely book to end the day with * Playing by the Book * A very funny story that shows we should have the courage of our convictions * Parents in Touch * Henry's self-belief is utterly awesome and entirely commendable; so too is this laugh out-loud creation from Russell Ayto. I've loved all his books, but this one surely tops the lot * Red Reading Hub *
