Summary
When Bigfoot is driving the bus, a field trip can feel legendarily long...but the best surprise of all is yeti to come!

When Yeti, the school bus driver, takes the class on a surprise trip, everyone wants to know: "Are we there, Yeti?"

And when they finally arrive, a new adventure is in store! Told with simple text and delightful illustrations, Ashlyn Anstee's debut picture book presents a fun, new take on a timeless question.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "A riff on the common refrain parents and teachers know so well but here children repeat this familiar phrase with a twist. They are on a bus trip, and the driver is a yeti. Impatient and squirmy, the kids ask again and again, Are we there, Yeti? but Yeti only answers, Not yet! as he drives on. Promising a surprise, Yeti drives past the park and the beach and up and down tall mountains. By now the antsy kids scream: I'm hungry! I'm bored! I'm thirsty! Eventually they shout: ARE WE THERE, YETI? A grinning Yeti answers, Yes! as they arrive at their destination high in the Himalayas. Remarkably, a swarm of yeti children come out to play. Together, the kids go sledding, make snowmen and snow angels, and have an energetic snowball fight until it's time to go. Speech bubbles and blocky cartoonlike illustrations done in gouache capture the rambunctious children. Yeti is a crudely drawn hero, sketched in off-white with big teeth and lots of personality. A romp.--Gepson, Lolly Copyright 2015 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "School bus drivers occupy a special place in children's imaginations, so debut author-artist Anstee is on to something by transforming this authority figure into a hulking mythical beast whose name happens to sound a lot like part of a classic kid whine. Yeti takes his charges and their teacher on an extensive road trip (the landscape changes from small town to shoreline to Alpine, prompting plenty of yeti-themed punning on the theme of "Are we there yet?") to his mountaintop habitat. From there, however, Anstee has trouble delivering on her big idea. The human children meet Yeti kids, they share some conventional wintertime fun and games, and promise to get together again. Even if the storytelling sags a bit, Anstee's drawings show a lot of promise: rendered in a sunny palette, her artwork, a mix of digital media and painting, has the breezy look of early 1960s animation. Anstee's bucktoothed, oversize hero and round-headed, eager-eyed children have big hearts and high spirits, and she includes just enough goofy incidental details to invite young eyes to linger.
