Yetis are shy and quiet, but there is a goblin who is going to prove to you that they are the worst creatures out there. They just must find them first. This book is tongue in cheek. It is so much fun and not only are the illustrations great, but the cover of the book also has both scratchy and fluffy textures. It’s the little things that count, and this book was a little joy to read. ( )

These pages prove how sneaky, giggle-worthy, and determined a yeti hunt can be.

Gilbert the Goblin is at it again, trying to prove to the reader that yetis aren't nearly as mysterious as people make them out to be. Wielding a polaroid camera, he marches off through mountains and snow. Of course, it doesn't quite work out the way he hopes it will.

This is the third book in a series, each which stands perfectly well on its own. Gilbert is his usual, concerned self and is out to prove that another mystical creatures, this time yetis, aren't nearly as awesome as people make them out to be...so, in other words, his envy shines through in an, actually, very subtle manner. Readers will pick up on it and realize he's being ridiculous, but it's most definitely the humor that drives this read. And quiet yetis.

The illustrations carry the humor, while the text lets Gilbert's more serious thoughts, flow. Each scene will have listeners giggling as the yetis appear. The illustrations are cheerful, oh-so-snowy, and make the yetis and Gilbert very approachable.

The other books in the series carry much the same scheme as this new one, but it's still a lot of fun to explore the various mythical creatures from the simple humor end as it pokes a bit of fun at the stories surrounding each one. Plus, Gilbert's jealousy makes it interesting to see what he'll try next...and how it always ends.

I do see this one as a very fun read-aloud in a group setting and for smaller book cuddling as well. I received a DRC and loved the guaranteed laughs kids have. ( )
