Book Release Event for Kids: Precious McKenzie

Precious McKenzie launches her new work at This House of Books, your member-owned, indie bookstore & tea shop in downtown Billings, Montana

Change of plans! Due to circumstances beyond anyone's control, we've had to reschedule this event from December 6 and switch books.

Now, member-owner Precious McKenzie will be on hand to sign and present her soon-to-be-released children’s book, Cinder Yeti, on Saturday morning, December 14, beginning at 10:30. 

Cinder Yeti is a kind, sweet yeti who lives with her bossy stepsisters high in the mountains. Her chores are never-ending. Her days are dull and boring. She longs for fun, so she journeys down to the village even though her stepsisters warn her that people and yetis don’t mix. Will Cinder Yeti find fun? Friendship? Or will she be captured alive?

This picture book turns the story of Cinderella into a story where Cinder Yeti learns to live happily-ever-after by relying on her own resources. Young children will delight in this beautifully written and illustrated book that is perfect for reading aloud or bedtime stories.

The pictures for Cinder Yeti are the work of Billings resident and member-owner, Edward Tanzosh.

Precious McKenzie is the most prolific author represented at This House of Books. She is the author of over 50 published books (if you count the translations of her works and the collections she edited, she has her name of the covers of 60 titles), mostly for children, but several academic works as well.

Meet this outstanding author, chat with her, and pick up a signed copy of her latest book. We will have other books by Precious on hand, too.
