This graphic novel is made up of a series of completely wordless short episodes, most starring a cute, noseless, androgynous childlike creature named Yam, who is always dressed in what looks like a hooded and footed snowsuit. Yam, occasionally accompanied by its companion Marzipan Cat, has lots of mini-adventures. Yam makes friends with a cupcake, falls into a hole and sprouts as a flower, makes friends with a raincloud, grows a head full of flowers on a bald child, makes friends with flowers – ...more

One Sentence Review: Pretty much what you'd get if you combined Yo Gabba Gabba with alternate comic fare, which is to say it's kinda brilliant.

It's quite obvious that I am missing the brilliance of it all, judging by the rave reviews this comic received. I can see how children would be delighted by the whimsical illustrations, imaginative plot and the generally weird hilarity. However, I found the style of the drawings frenetic, impossible to follow, and headache-inducing. As much as I like odd, eccentric and absurd things, I found myself constantly bewildered and thinking "What is going on here???"

This is SSSSOOOOO CUTE!!! It's a wordless comic and it's meant for younger readers, but I recommend it to absolutely anyone. Yam is a little dude with a magical back pack that helps him fly and he meets a very unique cast of characters. The drawings are fantastic and our little hero is very expressive. Oh! And I can't forget his friends Gato and May!!

A collection of cute and somewhat surreal stories about a boy in a hood named Yam. Most, while amusing, fail to pack any sort of punch. The longer story, "toy with my dreams," is new to the collection and really stands out above the content of the rest of the book. The color insert section is nice, too.

Somewhere in the same group of wordless (or near wordless) comics as Lio, Copper, and Owly.

Extremely cute and imaginative wordless comic. Includes an anthropomorphic television, jealous cat, and girl with dirt hair.
