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. ( )
