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