Publisher's Summary

Deep in the Himalayas, the daughter of an English earl is kidnapped by a huge hairy monster. Agatha Farlingham is introduced to a family of motherless yetis and devotes her life to their upbringing. She teaches them to talk, tells them stories and insists on polite manners. But as time passes, tourists and yeti-hunters arrive in to the mountains. Agatha knows that there is one place where they would be protected - at her home in England. So begins a hugely entertaining road trip half way across the world...

Well written, but a bit heavy handed

The story was cute and well written for the most part, but it was definitely a Christian book, which would probably be fine if your family is Christian, but many many families are not, and don’t really want their kids reading/listening to a book that is. It would have been nice to have known that ahead of time.
