The Abominables

The Abominables Book Cover While on an expedition to the Himalayas, aristocratic young Lady Agatha Farlingham is kidnapped by a yeti father and his family. She stays to teach the kindly yeti English speech, good manners, and fairytales.  Decades later, she transports the yetis back to her ancestral home in England for safety.  They journey through Asia and Europe, liberate a zoo, save Alpine rescue dogs, and interrupt a Spanish bullfight.  Upon arrival to England, the yetis are met by hateful Abominable snowman hunters.  But, British school children and royalty save the day in this whimsical story with its message of human rights and environmentalism. mjw
