It's a snowy, blowy, wintry day -- just perfect for a yeti hunt! Or so thinks big brother. But younger brother is not as convinced. Questions abound: Have you ever seen a yeti? Is a yeti strong? Can a yeti run fast?
Children will love trying to find the yeti in the pictures as the boys continue on their quest.
Mary Ann Fraser wrote and illustrated her first picture book in the second grade -- which received critical acclaim and a starred review from Mom and Dad. She graduated from UCLA and then went on to spend a year abroad studying at England's Exeter College of Art and Design. Since then, she has gone on to write and illustrate more than 60 books for children, winning accolades along the way -- including School Library Journal's ''Best Book of the Year'' and American Booksellers' ''Pick of the List.'' She currently resides in sunny southern California, but can often be found in colder climates searching high and low for yetis.

''Humor abounds throughout the snow-filled scenes, which impart more comfort than fright, and the boys' yeti encounter will elicit shrieks of laughter. With a nod to Michael Rosen's classic We're Going on a Bear Hunt (1989), this has a style, rhythm, and made-for-storytellers refrain of its own.''
''Verbal and visual gags keep the story moving briskly; the yeti/yet wordplay of the title recurs throughout, and while it takes the boys a while to find the yeti, readers will have fun spotting the creature . . . light, wintry fun for the cryptozoologically inclined.''
SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL
''Children will enjoy following the two boys on their thrilling adventure, and they’ll love searching for the yeti on each page. The acrylic illustrations and wintery palette reinforce the text perfectly. A surprise friendship makes this book appealing as both a read-aloud for storytimes and classrooms.''
