WINNER of Oscar's Book Prize 2021! WINNER Book of the Year and Best Picture Book at the Sainsbury's Children's Book Awards 2021!
Perfect for fans of Rachel Bright and Julia Donaldson, The Littlest Yak is a joyous, rhyming caper that teaches little ones to celebrate their own unique talents!
On the tip of the top of a mountain all snowy, where the ice-swirling, toe-curling blizzards were blowy, in a herd full of huddling yaks, big and small, lived Gertie . . . the littlest yak of them all.
Gertie is the littlest yak in her whole herd, and she's feeling stuck in her smallness - she wants to grow UP and have bigness and tallness!
But when it turns out that there are some things that only Gertie can do, might she come to see that she's perfect, just the way she is?
A rollicking, heartwarming and reassuring story from debut author, Lu Fraser and much-loved illustrator, Kate Hindley.

Lu Fraser is a hugely exciting new voice in children's picture books. She is based in Hampshire, where she lives with her husband and daughter, and writes in a shed in the garden. The Littlest Yak is her first book for children.
Kate Hindley studied illustration at Falmouth College of Art, and went on to work for two years as a children's print designer at a studio in Northampton, whilst working freelance on children's books and greetings cards. She has now illustrated many much-loved picture books, including Oliver and Patch by Claire Freedman (author of the Aliens Love Underpants series) and the award-winning You Must Bring a Hat and the brilliantly funny Be More Bernard, both written by Simon Philip. Kate has also illustrated the popular children's fiction series, The Royal Rabbits of London by Santa Montefiore and Simon Sebag Montefiore. In 2019, Kate launched her adorable Treacle Street series lift-the-flap books, for which she both writes and illustrates. Kate lives in Bristol.
