★ "It’s a sweet-natured story with a subtle, irresistible narrative momentum, and it’s beautifully drawn as well—Kwan’s snowy landscape feels just distant enough, with quirky touches that include trees that resemble popsicles."

-Publishers Weekly, starred review

"…it’s full of evidence of author-illustrator talent. He has an unusual and appealing visual style, with people and creatures that wonderfully combine plumpness and sharp angles, and pages that fill clean, wide-open spaces with just a few worldly details, suggesting a kind of playground of the imagination. Kwan also shows a flair for storytelling that seamlessly integrates the visual and the verbal."

-The New York Times

"A picture-book debut of promise."

-Kirkus Reviews

"This cool undertaking speaks volumes to the warm power of friendship and the thirst for adventure."

-School Library Journal

"The spare text, consisting largely of the boys’ notes, and the equally austere and stylized illustrations are perfectly matched, creating a lighthearted and comical tone. Yeti himself is warm and fuzzy, with an appealingly round shape, looking much like a child in a furry brown costume. Long on imagination and short on detail... this will have wide appeal."

-Booklist Reviews

"Simple, sweet, enormously stylish debut..."
