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

I know the person who made this book and he's a very talented artist if I do say so myself.

Somewhere in the same group of wordless (or near wordless) comics as Lio, Copper, and Owly.
Cute wordless comics that follow a childlike logic.
Almost intolerably cute.
