Henry and the Yeti
Henry loves yetis.
The problem is nobody knows if yetis actually exist. Henry, however, is sure they do, and he sets off on an expedition to find one. He has packed everything he needs, including a camera to take photos for evidence. But can he find a yeti? And will anyone believe him when he returns home?
Told through charming illustrations, this is a heart-warming and witty story about believing in yourself (and yetis).

"Be prepared for an active and boisterous read-aloud with animal noises, movement, and a funny twist at the end." --School Library Journal on WHOOPS!
"A great comic take on the Ugly Duckling tale, with double-page spreads in ink, watercolor, and pencil showing comical farm creatures and humans, who are every bit as ridiculous as the animals. The fun is in the details." --Booklist on THE COW THAT LAID AN EGG
