Review: Betty and The Yeti

Betty is young adventurer who likes to go out in the snow and collect items on her little red sled.
One day Betty finds some hairy, smelly clothes out in the snow and wonders who could they belong to? 

She sets off to find out and on her way, she meets local animals like a polar bear, a whale and an arctic hare. 

Each of the animals explain that they have other ways to keep warm, and they don’t need clothes. Finally she finds the owner of the clothes and it is not what she expected. At first Betty is a little terrified of the Yeti, but they soon become friends.

The animals on Betty’s journey are also initially scared of the Yeti but they soon find, through Betty’s help, that they don’t need to be.

Betty and the Yeti features fun rhyming words and perfectly matched mixed media illustrations. It sends a lovely message about making friends and how you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover.
