JUVENILE FICTION / Social Themes / Self-Esteem & Self-Reliance


A feel-good story about self-identity, growing up and family love.

"It’s not fair," George said to his mom when she came back from chasing some hikers. "I'm still not yet a yeti."

Everyone in George's family is a yeti. Everyone except George. George asks his family when he will be a yeti just like them, but their answers are no help. After talking to his mom, George thinks about whether he wants to be a yeti at all! Maybe there's another mystical creature that he'd rather be?

A heartwarming picture book exploring themes of acceptance, identity and being yourself, perfect for young children. Funny throughout with bright illustrations, children and parents will enjoy reading this time and time again.


"Small and friendly in a community of ferocious giants, George wonders when he will grow big and strong and terrifying like his yeti mom and dad. Even Grandad and Sister can make adventurous hikers scream and run away. Polaroid snapshots taped in an album are interspersed with snowy mountain landscapes, rainbows, and a colorful yeti family as George dreams of a different path. It's a tale filled with magical creatures, about love, acceptance, and embracing your dreams."—Foreword ReviewsWebsite
