A new student review of Hetty and the Yeti by Jules Burnett

Sweetfable posted a new student review of Hetty and the Yeti by Jules Burnett. See the full review.

The best part of the book for me was how everything was presented. I liked how certain words were bolded or in italics to emphasize them. To add to the experience of reading, there are many illustrations that show how the characters look, which is really helpful. At the beginning of each chapter is an old Tibetan saying, which was also a nice touch. The overall style of the book was very interesting, and I definitely enjoy reading books like this.

As for the story itself, it was funny at certain points, but never really got too deep into the story, and even when things got tense it never became too scary. The length of the book is really nice for younger readers, who may still want some illustrations to help give context to descriptions given. One critique of mine is that some parts of the story were pretty predictable. But overall the book was a very nice read.
