A hilarious new chapter book series from the bestselling author/illustrator of I'M THE BIGGEST THING IN THE OCEAN.
Blizz Richards is a great guy, a caring boss, and a loyal friend. Oh, yeah...he's also a yeti! He's made it his life's mission to study cryptids like him, hidden animals who have taken a powerful oath to never be seen by the outside world.
So when a photo of Cousin Brian becomes a media sensation, Brian can't handle the guilt and disappears. But it's time for the annual Bigfoot family reunion, and it won't be the same without him. Luckily, Blizz and his devoted team are on the case. Can they find their furry friend before their secret gets out for good?
In Kevin Sherry's hilarious new illustrated series, you'll meet a wide array of weird and wacky cryptids, from goblins and Goatman to skunk apes and Sasquatchanimals that you don't believe exist. And it's up to Blizz to keep it that way!

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
My 7 year old son loved this. It was a lot of fun. I'm looking forward to the next book already. I knew the Yeti knew how to have a good time.
I definitely felt emotional invested in The Yeti Files right away — I liked the characters and cared about their issues and laughed quite a bit with some gasps in between. It was also very easy to not like George Vanquist, the self-proclaimed cryptozooloigst and “paparazzi” photographer. Seriously, why can’t he just leave the Bigfeet alone? I was also not pleased with how George treated and talked to his dog Noodles — it’s nothing awful or inappropriate for children, but George’s mannerisms definitely make him an unlikable person! (By the way, as a side note, you’re supposed to not like George!) This is a very fun and imaginative story sure to delight kids of all ages. (I’m an adult and I loved it!) The story can be a bit silly at times, but there is a good dose of thoughtful themes to balance that out such as the themes of family, friendship, and loyalty. I also really enjoyed the black/white/gray illustrations — you can tell that Kevin had so much fun drawing them. The characters have such expressive faces and there’s lots to look at and see. Disclosure: I received a complimentary review copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. The opinions are my own.
