Introducing Yeti, a fuzzy and sweet new character whose story is perfect for summer, winter, and all the seasons in between!

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.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The thing about yetis is that yetis love winter. And they make it seem hard not to: adorable, fluffy yetis spend the first few pages having an absolutely terrific time. They slide down hills, drink hot chocolate, build snow castles (and play Godzilla), and make themselves into snowmen. But not even a yeti loves winter all the time. The hot chocolate runs out, and the snow makes their fur dry all poofy, and sometimes summer seems just a little more fun. Never fear, though! There are always ways to re-create summer, even on the coldest of days. Vogel's digitally touched, big-eyed yeti expresses a whole spectrum of emotions on his adorable face. The winter and summer spreads are easily distinguishable: winter is drawn in mostly white and soft blue, while the bright, multihued summer scenes immediately pop from the pages. With winter rolling in, this ode to seasons is sure to make a cozy and comforting companion.--Reagan, Maggie Copyright 2015 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Yetis-they're just like us. That's the essential takeaway as illustrator Vogel (Music Class Today!), in his first outing as author, reveals that winter can be hard on even these snow creatures. Vogel's furry, gumdrop-shaped yetis are far more adorable than abominable, and while they never get names, there's a definite sibling dynamic going on-the opening scene shows the smaller yeti being pulled through the snow on a sled by the larger one, who wears a red knit cap with earflaps and dangly pompoms. According to Vogel, yetis also love "drinking hot chocolate with their favorite stuffed toy" and ice-skating "Yeti style" (aka on their bellies). And when winter gets to be too much, they keep crabbiness at bay by remembering their favorite summer activities, which includes trips to the beach and flying down a Slip 'n Slide in a pose that looks suspiciously like their preferred ice-skating maneuver. Vogel narrates with gentle humor as his yetis-and the human kids they play with-remind readers that there's plenty of fun to be had in every season. Ages 3-5.
