THE SHY LIFE PODCAST

This is THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - each episode provides a glimpse into the slightly batty and bizarre world of Mr Shy Yeti. You will meet his friends, hear tales of his life in the library, travel with him as he gallivants about - and if you're good he might even read you one of his daft poems!
