From Storytime

Henry and the yeti by Russell Ayto

Young Henry persuades his school principal and his father to let him go on an expedition to find a yeti, provided he brings back proof and does not stay up too late.



Rawr rawr went the abominable snowman one day, rawr rawr went the abominable snowman

Rawr rawr went the abominable snowman one day, and they all went rawr rawr rawr. But…

We know abominables go [clap] la de la de la [wavey arms]

[clap] la de la de la [wavey arms], [clap] la de la de la [wavey arms]

We know abominables go [clap] la de la de la [wavey arms], they don’t go rawr rawr rawr.


Shake shake went the snowy yeti one day, shake shake went the snowy yeti.

Shake shake went the snowy yeti one day, and they all went shake shake shake. But…

We know yetis go [clap] rub a dub a dub [running arms]

[clap] rub a dub a dub [running arms], [clap] rub a dub a dub [running arms]

We know yetis go [clap] rub a dub a dub [running arms], they don’t go shake shake shake.


Yetis love snow and all things winter, but sometimes they need a dose of summer as well.



Five little yetis playing in the snow

One got hit by a snowball and started to roll…

She rolled down the hill and landed like spaghetti

Now out in the snow are how many yetis?
