Baby hasn't a thing to eat. Mama and Papa don't know what to do.


A witch appears. She knows what to do, but she's not telling. Not until Mama and Papa promise her her heart's desire! When the blubbering parents agree, the witch sends Papa on a quest for the only thing in the world that will save Baby -- yak juice.

Tony Johnston is at her rambunctious best as she goes trekking and tracking with Tim Raglin on this downright gleeful read-a-loud adventure to GO TRACK A YAK!

Along the way, the witch points out cowlike footprints and, when Papa gets set to "whack the yak" with a giant rock, informs him, "You ninny, yak juice is yak milk!"
