Product description

A family of yetis seek a safe haven in this final novel from the great Eva Ibbotson – a beloved and bestselling writer whose fans include US President Barack Obama. A hundred years ago, in the Himalayan peaks, the daughter of an English earl is kidnapped by a huge hairy monster. His motherless children need her help. Devoting her life to the children, Agatha Farlingham raises a yeti family with upright morals and impeccable manners. But when their secret existence is discovered, the yetis must leave their idyllic valley. Together, they hatch a daring plan to smuggle themselves around the globe to Agatha’s historic mansion in England. But when the yetis meet the outside world, chaos erupts! And when they finally arrive in England, a terrible shock awaits them… “The joyful absurdity of the notion, combined with Ibbotson’s wit… should make this a classic.” Daily Mail “Luminous, hectic and generous… lovely sharp writing.” Guardian
