Peg, who was born on the bright blue sea, figures she’s spent enough time sloshing around the bottom of the world. She’s determined to climb the world’s tallest mountain, because, as she’s heard, the view is quite something. Despite the warnings of other climbers -- “You’ve got no gear!” “There’s wind storms!” “They say there’s a monster up there: the Yeti!” -- Peg continues to climb.

Several close encounters with a grumpy Yeti don’t discourage Peg one bit, especially when she finds the Yeti has a yen for her tasty pork scruncheons. Now Peg wants to get onto the summit, but the Yeti won’t go away.

Mega-selling children’s lit stars Kenneth Oppel and Barbara Reid have teamed up to create a rollicking tall tale, where a feisty heroine never misses a beat in her quest to climb a mountain and make a friend. An outrageous story that kids will love, plus vibrant Plasticine illustrations, add up to a surefire hit!

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Modern Tall Tale Reason for Reading: I am reading all of the author's books. This is the second in the adventures of Peg series. Peg likes things that are big and best and this time she decides to climb Mt. Everest. Told in the format of a tall tale this is a fun, over-the-top adventure that will have kids laughing at the unbelievable abilities Peg is capable of. Her Yeti encounter starts off a little frightening but Peg soon turns the monster into a teddy bear and her fun doubles as he joins her on the trip back home. The book ends with Peg ready for another adventure and we see her on what looks like a fishing boat headed down the Amazon, leaving the book open for a sequel which Oppel has chosen not to follow up on. This book would not be what it is without the artwork of one of Canada's leading picture book illustrators, Barbara Reid. Reid works in Plastoscene 2D sculptures that are intricate and detailed. One can feel the texture and almost see the images coming off the page. Any book illustrated by Reid is worth picking up for her art alone. I saw her once on the kids' TV show "This is Daniel Cook"and she was amazing to see in action.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Team Two of my favorite Canadian authors co-wrote a book and I only just found it. With a story by Kenneth Oppel and her trademark plasticine illustrations by Barbara Reid, this is an amazing story. Young Peg has grown up in a fishing community, fishing with her mom and dad, so this is an adventuresome 8 year old. She decides she has spent her whole life sloshing around on the sea so she decides to climb the highest mountain. She encounters storms, avalanches and even a Yeti. She has a wonderful adventure and returns home with lots of stories and even a new friend. The dust jacket on the hard cover edition even unfolds into a wonderful poster.
