The arrival of any book by Pamela Butchart is always greeted by a great deal of squealing and general excitement by our Year 3 and Year 4 pupils and I fully anticipate that There's A Yeti In The Playground will have the same magical effect! In this latest adventure, Izzy and her friends Jodi, Maisie and Zach have to summon all their courage and work closely as a team in order to protect their school and their friends from the apparent arrival of a marauding hungry Yeti who has arrived on school grounds during a winter blizzard. As ever, the gang use every ounce of ingenuity they have (together of course with Jodi's legendary survival skills} to evade danger and there are certainly monster-sized quantities of laughs along the way! Our readers are hooked on Pamela's distinctive narrative style, perhaps in part because Izzy's voice as the narrator so convincingly echoes the way in which a child might recount a tale of adventure and danger. I love the trademark layout, font and design, with important words capitalised for emphasis and often underlined and surrounded by bubbles or stars. Widely spaced lines with abundant white space mean that Pamela's stories are perfect for struggling readers who find them visually very accessible. Highly recommended and I look forward to the next Izzy adventure! 274 pages / Ages 7+ / Reviewed by Emily Marcuccilli, school librarian
