Spaghetti with the Yeti Adam and Charlotte Guillian and Lee Wildish

Oh I do love a new book for the kids and Spaghetti with the Yeti was a hit!

It's packed with fantastic monster illustrations and a rhyming story - there are the "scary" monster bits which my little boy loves, such as crunchy bones, horrible howls and angriest growls! Both Blake (age 4) and Maegan (age 2) were rolling around on the floor laughing their little heads off as one of the monsters was called Betty! - they have a Nanna Betty (my Nanna, actually!)

We loved meeting all the other monsters on the adventure to discover the yeti and every time we read it, someone spots something new hidden in the wonderful illustrations "look Mummy, can you see that little bird/spider/crab?" 
The way this story rhymes and flows means you can really get into story telling with crazy monster voices and excitement building! 

It's a lovely big picture book and already a hit in our house!

We really like the main character, a little boy named George and can't wait for the next book in the series, Marshmallows for Martians!

"A fast-paced, rhyming romp of a story about yetis, monsters and George – an intrepid kid determined to prove the yeti’s existence

“Very commercial…kids will love it”
The Bookseller

Hurrah!” shouted George, “At last it is you. I’ve been looking so hard for the Yeti.”
The monster looked down with a horrible howl . . .
“Are you bonkers? My name is Netty!”
Join George, a young and courageous explorer, determined to track down the elusive Yeti against all the odds.

With only a map, a woolly hat and a tin of spaghetti in his rucksack, George sets off on his quest up the steep mountain path . . . and spots the Yeti immediately!
But wait . . . just look at that lipstick! Can it really be the Yeti?

With clever rhyme and great read-aloud potential,Spaghetti with the Yeti is a quirky and hugelycommercial book with international appeal.  LeeWildish’s vibrant and exuberant illustrations bring the story to life creating the beginning of a brilliant series. "
