4.0 out of 5 starsA fun story and a beautiful book.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 3 October 2019
Review by my daughter aged 8:
This book was a very, very good book but it doesn't explain everything. Like it doesn't tell you where they are or whether it is cold or a nice place or a fun place. They also don't say much about the people in it and what they are like. There is a lot of magic tales and I found the yeti really fun. This is the first Amelia Fang book that I've read but I don't think that mattered. I think people aged about seven to ten would like the book. The pictures in the book are good too.
This book is beautiful!! I love the colour and the edges of the paper being coloured too make the book feel special. I've heard of the Amelia Fang books and how popular they are but my daughter hadn't read any before this one. She didn't think that mattered and once she was into the book she read it quickly and clearly enjoyed the story. Sometimes I heard her laughing as she was reading. She's now keen to read the other Amelia Fang books. My son, who is also eight refused to read the book.

This is the fifth book in the series. My daughter tells me that the order doesn't matter though. She has been enjoying these books since she was almost 7 and continues to devour them. The presentation is clever and eye-catching. Each book has a different colour theme with the edges of the pages coloured. The illustrations are beautifully drawn and enhance storytelling. The stories are completely crazy, but my daughter re-tells them with such sincerity as she loves the familiarity of the characters. A great buy for 7 to 9-year-olds.
My oldest loves to read and isnt really fussy about what he reads, that being so I was not too sure he would be interested in a "girls" book but he actually enjoyed reading it. The character Amelia Fang is good fun as are her friends. What is important is the pages are not overburdened so a child can read at pleasure and its also very well illustrated throughout so it helps a child to relate to the story and follow it. It also encourages them to use their own imagination based upon what they read and the pictures in the book. The story is nice and good friendly fun, sort of reminds me of some of the cartoons on the kids TV channels.
5.0 out of 5 starsExuberant, cheeky and warm hearted

Amelia Fang is the cutest little vampire. She has a great bunch of lovable friends who cause her all kinds of grief and a cheeky sense of humour. This adventure sees her visit the Yeti Mountain for a very special, very chaotic birthday party. My daughter (7 years old) loves vampires (actually loves them - not just cute ones, scary ones too (kids are weird)) so this book is right up her street. The story is exuberant and funny (not just to 7 years olds who find everything funny especially if there are fart jokes in it - but actually staggeringly funny), it is also engaging and has a warm heart. The pictures are great too. every page has something going on. The illustrations are charming and detailed and feed directly into the story. This is a lovely book for young independent readers or for reading aloud.
4.0 out of 5 starsWOW factor illustrations with a haunting yet fun tale

This retro book really took me back to the days when the books i read as a child had amazing retro illustrations and simple yet memorizing tales that i would remember even in my adult years. The story is about Amelia Fang, A vampire who is trying to live a normal life. The book is expressional with a lot of cues when to talk a little louder in a different voice of one character, And lower the tone for another. This is an ideal book to get really involved with family story time, with plenty of interactions and time for imaginations to go wild.
Here is my nine year old daughter's review of this lovely book:
I LOVED the Amelia Fang and the lost yeti treasure because it is a combination of funny foul and fearful. I would highly recommended this book for under 11 year olds. The book is all so one of a series, all the Amelia Fangs are great but this one takes it to anther level. Its about Amelia and her friends get invited to a yeti party when all the yetis most sparkly things go missing, its up to Amelia and her friends to solve this sparkly mission. Easy to read, with pictures to show as well.
5.0 out of 5 starsAnother great addition to the Fang series!

More in the great series of books that is Amelia Fang! Read in a day by our youngest daughter who rated as good as all the others, with new characters, new twists and turns. We really like this series of books and have been recommending them to other parents. Illustrations are ace too. If this is your thing, then check out Twitter for the author who seems to have an inexhaustible energy for doodles, projects, book readings and visits! (she's even replied to a few posts made on behalf of our daughter). Perfect!

I gave this to my 11 year old grand daughter and although she enjoyed it she said it was geared more for a younger child. Those 3 years in reading age can make quite a difference to a young reader. The story is great as are the illustrations and book quality. I think if she had been younger she probably would have liked it enough to buy the series, but she is now reading completely different books. However she does recommended it for younger readers.

This is now the 5th book i have had in this series and it didnt disappoint.
It is funny and a lot of fun and it follows Amelia and her friends when they are sent to go see her Grandmother on her birthday in the Yeti mountains. Finding stolen treasure and evading crumbling and collapsing tunnels and rooms, and solving a msytery reminded me very much of the Goonies.
It was a good read, very engaging, illustrations fantastic, and this one in the series has a blue cover, and blue edged pages. On that note i really love the fact that each book is a different colour scheme. Very creative and makes the books easily identifiable
My daughter has read all the books in the Amelia Fang series and has loved them all. The key group of characters at the centre of the action remains the same, but this time the main focus is on Florence. As well as having a strong story line and lovely illustrations, the book helps explore complex emotions in a simple way. This time Florence is jealous of Amelia's new friends and interests and it's something that the two of them navigate together. Having had similar issues with friends herself, the book has enabled my seven-year-old to discuss the story and think about her own friendships.
