Zak the Yak is back! This is the second whimsical book in the "Zak the Yak" series that was written and illustrated in honor of Room to Read's ten year anniversary by Founder and Board Chair, John Wood. The story follows Zak, a yak from Nepal, on his quest to bring books to school children around the world. As always, he is trying to make the world a better place. But now he has two new friends to help him get the job done.
Quack, the duck, and a young Vietnamese boy named Vu join Zak in a quest to build a new school in Vu's small village. Join our dynamic trio in their adventure as the over-loaded canoe races against time to get the school built before monsoon rains threaten to destroy their progress. Will they succeed?
