Autumn/Winter 2020 Picture Book Reviews

The Littlest Yak by Lu Fraser

Illustrated by Kate Hindley

My favourite picture book of 2020! I just adored little Gertie and her sheer amount of bravery and determination.

For a conventional children's story trope that's seen the outstanding likes of Rachel Bright, Laura Ellen Anderson and Julia Donaldson master, Lu Fraser's The Littlest Yak shines bright in a sea of talent.

With bouncy and beautiful rhyme, a pacy and dramatic plot, in a spectacular wintry wonderland setting that's as captivating as it is charming, Lu's fresh and reassuring take on celebrating the uniqueness of YOU (no matter how small) is an instant heart warmer.

Gloriously brought to life by Kate Hindley, The Littlest Yak is a showstopper stunner! Readers of all ages will delight at the snowy mountain top scenes, the striking starry skies and the charming family of yaks all wrapped up in their woolly hats.

A winning picture book. The Littlest Yak will become a family favourite for many I'm sure.

IF YOU LOVED THIS, TRY... The Lion Inside by Rachel Bright and I Don't Want to be Small by Laura Ellen Anderson.
