Review: Dear Yeti

Dear Yeti Dear Yeti by James Kwan
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Hikers are looking for Yeti and keep sending him letters until Yeti comes to their rescue.

Why have there been so many yeti books published this year? I just don't understand this non-trend.

The illustrations in this book seem to be rendered in colored pencil with digital assistance. I appreciate the progression of trees as the boys wander further from home as well as the darkness of the sky as time passes. It is a well-designed book. But the narrative just doesn't do much for me. The letter-writing concept is fun and after the success of The Day the Crayons Quit, also written in letters, I can understand its use. But here, it feels awkward, even with the cute little bird mail carrier.
