No Yeti Yet
By Mary Ann Fraser
Peter Pauper Press, Inc., 2015.  Picture Book.

It's a snowy, blowy, wintry day--just perfect for a yeti hunt!  Or so thinks big brother.  But his 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 spy the yeti as the boys continue on their snowy quest.  And as this sweet tale unfolds, in a touching role reversal, the student becomes the teacher--and a new friendship is born.  --Publisher
