- "Another instalment of adventure from Gilderoy Lockhart."
Year with the Yeti was a book written by Gilderoy Lockhart, one of his collected works. The book was a required textbook for Lockhart's Defence Against the Dark Arts class during the 1992-1993 school year, one of seven along with Break with a Banshee, Gadding with Ghouls, Holidays with Hags, Travels with Trolls, Voyages with Vampires and Wanderings with Werewolves.
This book revealed how Lockhart supposedly gave a Yeti a headcold, though Lockhart later revealed that he was merely taking credit for the achievements of other wizards. It was also in this book Lockhart indicates that his favourite colour is lilac.
Spella Weekly praised the book, writing, "Heart to Hart with the lovely Lockhart. Bewitching." What Wand also gave it a favourable review, raving, "Lockhart sure can spell. Lock around the clock!" Both quotes were featured on the back of the book's dust jacket.
When investigating a Muggle sighting of a magical creature at the Siren's Rest pub in Wales, Mathilda Grimblehawk and her partner came across a journal with a drawing of a yeti on the front cover. Mathilda's scoffed "I hope this reads better than Lockhart's 'Year with the Yeti'…"
