01 May / Tiger of the Snows: Tenzing Norgay: The Boy Whose Dream Was Everest by Robert Burleigh, illustrated by Ed Young [in Bloomsbury Review]
Ed Young’s superb illustrations bring to life the journey of legendary Nepali Sherpa Tenzing Norgay who, together with Edmund Hillary, became the first climbers to reach the top of Mt. Everest in 1953. While Sir Hillary’s name is certainly better known in the West, the achievement belongs at least as equally (if not more so) to the accomplished, dedicated Tenzing Norgay.
