I just couldn’t resist this adorable little book when I spotted it on Netgalley. The cover was just too cute and then I saw that the art was done by the fantastic Kate Hindley! I adore her art so I immediately knew I had to get this book and read it.
Meet Gertie, a very tiny tiny yak, she is amazing at all there is about being a Yak. From fur to clip-clopping through the mountains, she is great at it… but as you can immediately see… she missing something BIG. 😛 I loved that Gertie’s mom told her that she didn’t need to be big to be a true Yak… but as we can all expect (at least I did), Gertie is not impressed.
After that a new regime started and I instantly got the theme song to Rocky and also The Eye of the Tiger in my mind. I loved how dedicated Gertie was!
Then something else happens, and no I won’t tell you what, but I definitely liked that this part was added. It brought a smile to my face.
The ending was just the best and I loved that final page, that was wonderfully done.
A fun, motivational, happy book about a tiny yak named Gertie, I would recommend it!
