You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yeti! is the second book in the Nothing To See Here Hotel series and it is sure to be a hit with little fans of the first book. The Nothing To See Here Hotel is written with an audience of 6+ in mind.
I gave this one to my 10year old son to read and report back to me on. He’s a boy of few words (sometimes) and he could only tell me that yeah it was good and he enjoyed it. Sorry mate, not really very helpful. It’s a book that he read in a couple of days.
The Nothing To See Here Hotel is a luxury getaway for magical creatures of all descriptions, run by humans; except they aren’t pure-blood humans as you will soon discover.
The story is written by Frankie Bannister, the young son of the hoteliers, and tells of all the adventures, or misadventures as the case may be, of life in the hotel.
The language is a little nonsensical, which will be perfect to tickle the tonsils of young ones reading along. The text is a decent size, most of the pages are illustrated and the chapters are pretty short which will make for a more engaging read for young readers. It will also make it easier on the parent if you are using it as reading together time before bed, I only say this because we were reading Harry Potter by the chapter before bed and some of those were REALLY long chapters.
This looks like a smashing good read and I look forward to reading what our members and their children thought.
Synopsis from the Publisher’s Website:

But when a snow storm blows in (complete with Yeti family), and a number of mysterious guests arrive, something sinister seems to be taking over the hotel and celebrating is the last thing on anyone’s mind…

My blurb went missing… so now I have to bring you a new one. One that is a little broader too.
I devour books, vampires and supernatural creatures are my genre of choice but over the past couple of years I have broadened my horizons considerably.
I inhale music, hair metal that satisfies my inner bogan is where my musical passion lies, but again I’ve been exposed to lots of different music I wouldn’t normally listen to and have broadened those horizons also.
In a nutshell – I love to write! I love interacting with a diverse range of artists to bring you interviews.
Perhaps we were perfect before – I LOVE WORDS! Reading, writing, speaking, listening – if it’s got words I’m there!
