The Abominable Snowman
The Abominable Snowman5 1 5 Автор: Terry Pratchett
Captain the Honorable Sir Herbert Stephen Ernest Boring-Tristam-Boring (known as Bill) is very rich but very bored. When famed explorer Alfred Tence* shows up at Bill’s door, life gets considerably more exciting. Before long, they’re speeding off in a taxi to the distant mountains of Chilistan in search of the hairiest, most mysterious monster ever known—the Abominable Snowman!
Featuring the signature wit and invention of one of the world’s most beloved writers, this irreverent, illustrated story is from Dragons at Crumbling Castle and Other Tales by Terry Pratchett.
[*Yes, that Alfred Tence—the man who rowed from Brighton to Bombay in a bathtub. It’s true. ]
Praise for Dragons at Crumbling Castle and Other Tales
“My son and I discovered Terry Pratchett’s books together, when he was about eleven years old. He’d be reading on his own and would start to laugh, and then eagerly read the passage aloud to me—and I’d do the same to him! Pratchett’s books became a shared source of delight for us back then, and they still are today. ”—Linda Sue Park, Newbery Medal winner
“Feature[s] characters heroic or hiss-worthy, pranks and battles aplenty, sly twists on the familiar tropes and his trademark mix of silly humor and accurate moral commentary. ”—Kirkus Reviews
“It’s a pleasure to read Pratchett’s reflections in his introduction and to see his signature warmth, wit, and intelligence light up these simple stories. ”—Booklist
