"After young Lady Agatha Farlingham is kidnapped by yetis on a trip through the Himalayas, she discovers that the supposedly "abominable" creatures are actually quite lovable. For years, Agatha lives happily with the family of yetis in their hidden valley, until rampant tourism forces them to abandon their home and make their way to Agatha's family estate. Can the innocent, quirky yetis survive the trip from Tibet to England without being discovered? Find out in his warm, witty, fast-paced fantasy that's just right for Roald Dahl fans."
