Captain the Honorable Sir Herbert Stephen Ernest Boring-Tristam-Boring (known as Bill) is very rich but very bored.

When famed explorer Alfred Tence* shows up at Bill's door, life gets considerably more exciting. Before long, they're speeding off in a taxi to the distant mountains of Chilistan in search of the hairiest, most mysterious monster ever known—the Abominable Snowman!

Featuring the signature wit and invention of one of the world's most beloved writers, this irreverent, illustrated story is from Dragons at Crumbling Castle and Other Tales, by Terry Pratchett.

[*Yes, that Alfred Tence—the man who rowed from Brighton to Bombay in a bathtub. It's true.]
