    One thought on “No Yeti Yet”

    1. Yetis seem to have come into vogue for picture books, as evidenced by NO YETI YET by Mary Ann Fraser. Two brothers go on a wintery search to photograph a yeti; the older brother more enthusiastically than the younger. As they hike, older brother answers questions about yetis. The observant reader will note they are being trailed by the very object of their search. The illustrations make it clear the yeti is friendly, not threatening. When they finally meet, the boys panic, drop their camera, and [...]

    2. A delightful and beautifully illustrated picture book about two little brothers going in search of a Yeti one cold winter's day. The major book review sources (School Library Journal, Booklist, Publishers Weekly) gave it terrific reviews. I am happy to say that I own an autographed copy that I purchased at one of Mary Ann Fraser's book signings. This book is perfect for story time for ages 3 to 8! I plan to do a snow-themed story time in January and this will be one of the books that I read.

    3. A delightful story with great read aloud potential about two siblings who go outside on a cold winter day in search of a yeti.

    4. Cute. A little slow, but I'm thinking asking them to point out the Yeti might make that up. I like that you can tie it in with senses and general winter 'feels' Since they describe what they're looking for it might get a little less of a 'what is a Yeti' response than some of the other recent Yeti and Bigfoot picture books.

    5. This proved to be a good storytime read-aloud! Children enjoy seeing the yeti on the page before it's discovered by the two main characters. It's also nice to run across a friendly yeti on a cold, snowy day!

    6. Beautiful illustrations & a fun story of two brothers who search for a Yeti. My 4 year old loved searching for the Yeti on each page.

    7. No Yeti Yet is a picturebook by Mary Ann Fraser. It's a snowy, blowy, wintry day which one big brother thinks is just perfect for a yeti hunt! The younger brother is not as convinced and his questions abound. Have you ever seen a yeti? Is a yeti strong? Can a yeti run fast? The big brother’s answers and the readers search for the yeti make the book interactive and enjoyable.No Yeti Yet is a fun and entertaining story. I love how the older brother is attempting to ‘teach’ his younger brothe [...]

    8. Children's book #6SummaryA boy and his older brother go on a search to find a yeti. A yeti is a giant snow monster, but whether it is friendly or not the boys are unsure. Their ultimate goal is to snap a picture if they see one. Eventually, they come across one and quickly take a photo. When they arrive home, the camera is no where to be found. They look out the window and see the yeti holding the camera, so they invite it in for a cup of hot cocoa.ActivityThroughout the book, many similes are u [...]

    9. This. Is. Adorable. So much fun. The all-dialogue text is precise and true to the age and relationship of the sibling characters. The page turns play to a child's curiosity and wanting to read on. This will prompt a child to reread this one over and over again and also want to read it alone or even with a friend or a sibling. (They could each read a part!) So. Much. Fun! I love the subplot in the pictures and how the reader is in on a secret that the characters don't know about. Near the end, th [...]

    10. Mary Ann Fraser's delightful No Yeti Yet tells the tale of two brothers on the search for a Yeti! When Big Brother wants to find a Yeti, little brother tags along and asks question after question about the elusive Yeti. And, of course, his big brother is happy to share his Yeti wisdom.No Yeti Yet is a simply endearing and fun story from beginning to end! Little readers will have a blast learning all about the wild Yeti and joining the two lovable brothers on their big adventure. With sparse, yet [...]

    11. Brothers go out on a snowy day to find a yeti. The younger brothers asks a lot of questions about what yetis look like, sound like, smell like. And even though a yeti is nearby the boys don’t see him while they’re playing in the snow. Then in a deep dark cave they finally come face to face with a yeti. They are so scared, the older brother drops his camera, and they run all the way home with the yeti close behind them. The yeti finally catches up with them and the younger brother invites him [...]

    12. The premise is a delight and the visual cues/hints/humor begins on the book jacket and endpapers. Charming illustrations with suitably cool tones are perfect for the parallel wordless story yeti is trying to tell.A side note involves the many ways this could see as mentor text for effective writing. Word-play involving rhymes, modified word forms, figurative language, sensory elements can be demonstrated on nearly every page. Add to that the effective use of dialogue, Q/A patterns, repetition of [...]

    13. On a very snowy day, an older brother takes his little brother out for a yeti hunt. It’s a perfectday for a yeti, but they don’t seem to see one, at least that older brother who thinks he knows so much doesn’t. Any young child will continue to see that sneaky Yeti, but the boys keep looking and looking, until. . . There’s a wonderful surprise ending that will make all readers happy. Beautifully done pictures of snowy scenes, including some little animals in the woods along with that “h [...]

    14. My wife picked up a signed copy for our niece at ALA. (She also got a packet of Yeti Bait! (view spoiler)[Hot cocoa with mini marshmallows. (hide spoiler)]) Most of the rest of you will need to wait until Fall 2015 when the book is released.How can I not give this book 5 stars: there is a yeti on almost every page?!? Lots of other nice touches, including the pink flamingo umbrella, the differences in the end papers, and the cat eyes--the cat is hiding in the furniture when the kids arrive home.

    15. CUTE story! With REALLY cute illustrations! Could be great for a classroom library, for a number of reasons. Living in the Pacific Northwest, yetis are definitely popular out here! I like that it touches on different qualities the yeti has- which could be good for teaching kids things to include in their own writing! Fun adventure story, and is definitely "current", with the "selfie" on that last page. Definitely recommend this one :)

    16. A bit like We're Going on a Lion Hunt, this includes the early literacy skills of Narrative Skills (telling the story and then going in reverse) and Vocabulary (perfect, shaggy, yowl, wooly, humongous). The repeated refrain of "no yeti yet" keeps preschoolers engaged with the text, and they could easily act out the story for the early literacy practice of Play.

    17. My son thinks this book is so funny--he loves finding the yeti on each page and feeling more observant than the cute little siblings. He says he wants to be a yeti for Halloween this year and that I get to dress up like the big brother."And don't forget your camera, Mom!"

    18. I can see kids NEEDING to point out exactly where the yeti is on every page. Part of the fun of discovering a book, though also part of the "struggle" in a classroom setting.The illustrations fit the story perfectly.

    19. Grades Pre-K to 2. A wintery "Going on a Bear Hunt" read-alike. Brothers go out into the snow to track down a yeti. They look for clues-- how it smells, what it sounds like, etc. Readers will laugh at the hints. Great for storytime.

    20. A great rollicking read! I laughed and chuckled throughout the entire picture book. Fun story with peek a boo illustrations. You #mustread this book and maybe you will get to see a yeti too!Written by author/illustrator May Ann Fraser. Published by Peter Pauper Press.

    21. I loved the look and see feature in this book. Those little boys had no idea the Yeti was with them the entire time and that he was nice. It was nice to see them become friends!

    23. A bit repetitive for my liking but I loved the look and find Yeti throughout the book. Great addition for a snow, winter, or monster Storytime.

    24. Structured quite similarly to "We're Going on a Bear Hunt". A brother and sister are off hunting for a yeti but if you're extra good, you'll be able to spot the yeti on every page.

    25. "It's a perfect day for a Yeti hunt."Students will love locating the Yeti in the pictures that the main characters don't notice.
