Spaghetti with the Yeti *Review and Giveaway*

This brightly illustrated story follows a young boy named George as he travels up a mountain path in search of a yeti with only his map, a woolly hat and a tin of spaghetti! He meets a variety monsters on the way, each of which offer advice on what to feed the yeti should he find it, in this quirky and humourous 30 paged rhyming paperback.



Spaghetti with the Yeti is the first in a series from Adam and Charlotte Guillain with Marshmallows for Martians set for release in spring next year. The book is very descriptive and the changes in font style and size really help to add emphasis. The pictures, by award winner Lee Wildish, fill the pages and are wonderfully drawn with lots of colour to keep little ones engaged.



As soon as the packaging was removed Jamster settled by my side for a read, pointing out all of the detail in the beautiful imagery as the story progressed. The book teaches little ones that you should follow your beliefs and not to give up, even if you don't succeed at first and it is ideal for children over the age of three.

Will George get to eat with the Yeti or be eaten himself? You will have to find out for yourself!
