*Review* Betty the Yeti Hates Spaghetti by Mandy R. Marx


Genre: Children's 5-8 years
Published: July 31, 2023
Pages: 32

Betty and her family of yetis just moved to their new apartment. Betty's never lived around humans before now. When friendly neighbors bring the Yetis dinner, Betty eats spaghetti for the first time and it's nothing like she expected! Will Betty adjust to a new neighborhood, new foods, and new friends?

I received a copy of this book through Netgalley. This is my honest review. 

This is a story about a yeti named Betty whose family moves into a new apartment in a building with humans. Betty really didn't want to move because she liked her home and everything was familiar and comfortable there. In the new building, some of the human neighbors come to visit and invite the yeti family to dinner where they're having spaghetti. But Betty has never had spaghetti before, and it's very different from what she usually eats and she just doesn't want to try it. But then she makes friends with the neighbor girl and realizes things in her new home might not be as bad as she feared. 

The illustrations for this book were very colorful and fun. I wouldn't mind reading this book several times because I appreciate the message and it was just a cute little story. Overall I give it 4.738 out of 5 stars. - Katie
