Aubrey and the Terrible YootAubrey and the Terrible Yoot is an uplifting, remarkable book, which mixes myth, fable and family life. Written by Horatio Clare and beautifully illustrated by Jane Matthews, this is the story of a rambunctious boy who needs to save his father from depression. Funny and uplifting, this is an imaginative and thoughtful tale which will captivate every reader.

“A daring book, beautifully conceived and supremely well written. Horatio Clare has the voice of a great storyteller…a joy, a sheer joy! “
Michael Morpurgo
