Timely, beautifully illustrated and perfect for kids.
Everyone knows yetis love winter. They love snowball fights and hot chocolate and sledding and building snow castles. But even yetis get the shivers, and even yetis get crabby from all the cold. So here’s a secret about yetis: sometimes they miss summer. Sometimes, they have to bring a little bit of summer to the coldest of winter days. Those yetis, they're just full of surprises.
Perfect for fans of Love Monster and the Cat books by Deborah Underwood, this endearing new character will warm your heart.
Veteran illustrator/character designer Vin Vogel kicks off his debut novel by introducing us to a Yeti, who loves winter. However, amidst playing in the snow and hot chocolate, the Yeti admits that sometimes, he misses summer as well - a surprising admission for this snow creature!
Using a bold palette and finely detailed drawings, Vogel paints a wonderful reminder on what it means to enjoy the four seasons, but also finding ways to cope when things feel a little down. The Yeti's ingenious solution for coping with his yearning for summer is brilliant, and will likely inspire (and encourage!) many a young reader who is also suffering from the winter blues.
Between the simple but important storyline and the lovingly detailed drawings, this is one picture book that you can't miss. Perfect to hand to a young reader who may be struggling with adjusting to change.
