    One thought on “Aubrey and the Terrible Yoot”

    1. An only child, Aubrey lives with his parents in a small town somewhere in mainland Britain. From birth he has proved himself outstanding in refusing to live down to expectations, and gets on with doing things which aren't always beyond his capabilities. Until the day that he becomes convinced that his father has been put under a spell. Followed soon after by realising he can talk to animals.I can't emphasise how much I enjoyed this children's book, focused on a rambunctious boy. (You knew, of c [...]

    2. An open look at depression for young readersIt's not a topic you see often for children, but it will be something many encounter, probably through family members primarily. Horatio Clare puts it into a context that primary-aged readers will find accessible and able to discuss it using.Aubrey notices his dad becoming sadder and sadder, before a charismatic and energetic English teacher, he now seems to carry the weight of the world on his shoulders and doesn't play, talk or even get out of bed an [...]

    3. "Here is writing and storytelling at its best. Here is a wondrous tale," blurbed Michael Morpurgo this book. Now after few disappointing experiences I'm a little bit cautious about blurbs by famous authors. But Mr. Morpurgo wasn't exaggerating. This is a fantastic book.It is a look at depression through childs eyes, pure and fortunate not to understand such a thing yet which makes him a perfect "warrior" to fight it. The person suffering from depression is Aubrey's father and although this is a [...]

    4. A brilliant book dealing with a difficult subject: depression. Accessible but with a good amount of challenging vocabulary (e.g. Rambunctious), perfect for LKS2 but would need to tread carefully around suicide and dark thoughts.

    5. An easy 5 stars. Funny, tragic, heart-warming and yes, it made me cry - a totally assured & lyrical book, yet balanced with enough humour to stop it becoming saccharine.Likely to be my Carnegie nom!

    6. A wonderful, humorous story about a difficult subject. I hope it reaches children with a depressed parent. (And their parents as it might even work as a self help book.)

    7. Super writing. Deserves more awards (Branford Bose Award Winner 2016) Brilliant. Well done author and illustrator

    8. Funny and fearless, Aubrey and the Terrible Yoot is a modern-day fable that mixes real family life with fantastical woodland creatures and a more than a touch of myth and mystery, to tackle the theme of depression head on, complemented by unforgettable line drawings by illustrator Jane Matthews.

    9. This is a beautiful book full of amazing human and animal characters. If you want your child to understand the nature of suffering mental illness this will definitely do it and the depiction is very fitting. At the same time there is lot of magic and also fun. Very nature loving book. Also enjoyed the footnotes. Hope the next book of Abrey's adventures with terrible spiders is just as good.

    10. The book deals with a difficult topic in a heartfelt and funny way. The characters (animal and human) are delightful. Definitely recommend.

    11. I'm sorry. I didn't like this book. It was a good idea, but I felt that it was aimed at really young children, yet there was this part near the end where I thought - are young children really meant to read that? The humour was cringy and annoying. it wasn't for me.

    12. A brilliant story for children talking about mental health and depression in a relatable way with a bit of adventure and animals.

    13. What a beautiful clever story. A delight to read that tackles well with helping children to understand depression, and the depths of depression. With the help of his animal friends the book follows Aubrey helping his dad deal with his depression 'the terrible yoot.' Funny in parts, loved the neighbour . Such a great book!!
