Raves and Reviews

"A nifty take on the perennial question "Are we there, yet(i)?" and a prerequisite read-aloud before a first class field trip."

– Kirkus Reviews

"A handy title for those looking to feature gentler monsters in their storytimes."

– School Library Journal

"Anstee’s drawings show a lot of promise: rendered in a sunny palette, her artwork, a mix of digital media and painting, has the breezy look of early 1960s animation. Anstee’s bucktoothed, oversize hero and round-headed, eager-eyed children have big hearts and high spirits, and she includes just enough goofy incidental details to invite young eyes to linger."

– Publishers Weekly

“Speech bubbles and blocky cartoonlike illustrations done in gouache capture the rambunctious children. Yeti is a crudely drawn hero, sketched in off-white with big teeth and lots of personality. A romp.”

– Booklist
