‘Oh, this is a lovely children’s book. In common with all the Maverick children’s books I’ve read, Not Yet A Yeti is beautifully presented with glorious illustrations and a high quality feel.
What is so appealing about Not Yet A Yeti is the wonderful message that being different is not a bad thing.
The language is so well balanced with challenge in some of the vocabulary like ‘survive’ and ‘massive’ as well as familiarity and repetition, making for a book that can be shared at home or in school or can be read independently as children become more confident.
Without wishing to go too far, I think Not Yet a Yeti would be super to share with children of indeterminate gender or who are adopted as the story makes it clear that it is perfectly acceptable to be different and reading it would enhance their self worth and esteem.
I think Not Yet A Yeti is a book that will soon become a firm favourite with adults and children alike. I loved it.’
Thanks so much, Linda! That is a truly wonderful review.
