The Littlest Yak

Author: Lu Fraser
Illustrator: Kate Hindley
Publisher: Simon & Schuster

The Littlest Yak is a joyous, rhyming caper that teaches little ones to celebrate their own unique talents!

On the tip of the top of a mountain all snowy, where the ice-swirling, toe-curling blizzards were blowy, in a herd full of huddling yaks, big and small, lived Gertie . . . the littlest yak of them all.

Gertie is the littlest yak in her whole herd, and she's feeling stuck in her smallness - she wants to grow UP and have bigness and tallness! But when it turns out that there are some things that only Gertie can do, might she come to see that she's perfect, just the way she is?

A rollicking, heartwarming and reassuring story about self-acceptance from debut author, Lu Fraser and much-loved illustrator, Kate Hindley.

WINNER of Oscar's Book Prize 2021!
