I got this in the February "Wild Magic" Owlcrate Jr. box. It looked like a quick and fun read so I went ahead and sat down and read it. It took me about 30 mins to get through and it had tons of awesome illustrations. It was funny, cute, and fun read. I think if you have a bro/sis or son/daughter who loves funny chapter books, they would get a kick out of this one and so will you. :)

I requested a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I have another of Kevin Sherry's books, I'm The Biggest Thing in the Ocean, and the kids and I both love his artwork from this preschool book. The Yeti Files does not disappoint. This book is packed full of funny and creative illustrations for young readers. I would recommend this book for children who are ready to move beyond stages reading books but not quite ready for the amount of words in a typical chapter book ...more

This came down on the elementary side. I was hoping for a notebook novel (since it's 128 pages), but it read more like the world's longest picture book. I also was not entirely convinced of the Yeti culture.

Authentic Yeti culture. Sigh. Sometimes I wonder about my job! And me!
I am so happy I bought this one when I spotted it at the second-hand part of the book store I was at on Saturday.

I was already flipping through it when I spotted it, so I knew it had a lot of potential to be great. And it was! It is about Blizz. Sounds like a normal guy? Right? But actually Blizz is a Yeti! And he is trying to hide his existence (there is some sort of pact set by all the cryptids in the world) and live the good life.

As the book continues we see a bit more of Blizz's life, but

Rating by my 9 year old son, but I enjoyed it too! He didn’t give it five stars because he wanted it to be longer. We enjoyed the drawings and thought it was a fun read!

Good choice for a transitional reader.
I think some of my students would absolutely love this because it's funny, easy to follow, and quick to read.

This chapter book is so much fun and perfect for reluctant readers. My son and I read this one together (as a read aloud) and we both enjoyed it. I loved the humor and my son loved all the fun monsters in the book. The illustrations were also really great! We are looking forward to continuing with the series.

I used to not like to read blithe or fantasy books as always. But I wanted to try something new and it was good start. I really liked the book how is it entertaining and talk about how can you make new friends easily by being a kind and smiley person. the book is about the "yeti" is a yeti a man? no, is a yeti a ape? no.

Blizz Richards is a yeti. He lives in the mountains of Nepal in a secret lair equipped with comic books, a tire swing and a hot tub. Yetis are a kind of cryptid - hidden animals whose existence has never been proven. The Loch Ness Monster is a cryptid, as are mermaids, leprechauns and Bigfoot. Blizz and all of the other cryptids have taken a vow never to be seen by the outside world. Blizz and his family used to have a big reunion every year at his cousin Brian's house in Canada. Everyone would ...more

Blizz is a yeti. He's a kind of cryptid. Cryptids are really big on staying out of the public eye. So it is tricky to do things like get together for family reunions, but Blizz and his cousins still like to make the effort. This year, though, cousin Brian the bigfoot accidentally got spotted and photographed by a crazy old man who now thinks himself a cryptozoologist. Will the family reunion be safe from the prying eyes of a man with a camera? And just where has Brain gotten to? Blizz and his fr ...more

Cute silly illustra-hybrid featuring a Bigfoot and a Cryptozoologist by the author of beloved picture books such as I'm the Biggest Thing in the Ocean.
Meant to take it out the elementary schools, but it didn't make the list this year.

The Sasquatch are more monster-like than humanoid. There is an off-duty Santa's elf, too - this isn't taking cryptoscience seriously at all (wink wink). There's a lack of internal logic, which is fine and fun, but didn't scratch all of my itches, coming from the

Elementary kids are going to love this series. The characters are mostly cryptids -- hidden animals whose existence has never been proven, and who have all taken oaths of secrecy. As you might imagine, the cryptids are a colorful and kind group who just want to do their thing without the pesky PEOPLE trying to ruin their existence.

The drawings are fun and there is lots of detail on each page for readers to study as they get to know the yeti and other cryptids. (The yeti faces reminded me of the

Blizz sets out to a family reunion of the Bigfeet brothers and sisters. Along the way they discover that cousin Brian had his photo captured by a photographer that is determined to prove that Bigfoot is real. In this comedic junior novel with distinct fun touch in the illustrations that sold it for me. Similar in style to "Scaredy squirrel" in that there are certain objects and things pointed out in the illustrations for the viewer. Worth a good laugh. Good boy book although girls would like it ...more

Randomly chose this book for my daughter, who loves graphic novels. I know this isn't really classified as a graphic novel. I'm not sure what you would call it. It is a chapter book/picture book. At any rate, she loved it and told me that I had to read. This reminds me of the fun Bad Kitty series. We are hoping that The Yeti Files is a long lasting series. We found it funny and charming. I loved that one of the messages is to treat your dog right! We love this book!

The book seems appropriate for grades 2-4. I feel like it was fast paced, humorous, and very easy to read. It was a cute book and the characters were really likeable. I could see this book being checked out by children ages seven through twelve who enjoy animals, humor, comic books, and action. This book is a mix between a comic book and a chapter book. It would be fun to use in a program involving cryptozoology. (Review by Amanda Curless)

This was a fun book for young readers, filled with goofy characters and nice artwork. It also has some pretty good lessons on friendship and minding your own business, but it's probably the type of book a kid would read only once (unless he/she wants to practice drawing some of the book's characters).

This book is about Blizz Richards and his cryptid friends. When George Vanqulst takes a picture of Blizz's cousin Brian he runs away. They have to go to Canada to find him

I really like this book because it is soooooooo cute. The character Gunthar is the best thing in the book. And the unicorn is also cool.

A good read for Cam. The comic book style was a little difficult but he likes the pictures that went with that style much more than the other pages.

Funny like Dav Pilkey but maybe for a slightly younger crowd who has yet to explore the joys of toilet humor. Can't wait for the next one.

My 9 year old dislikes reading (MUCH to my chagrin). He has to read 20 minutes every evening for homework. So, you can imagine it's a struggle. I was shopping and picked this book up on a whim, hoping it might be something he liked. My son read this book in a few days (which is a HUGE deal). He would read a few pages in the morning on the way to school and a few pages in the car on the way home from school. He wasn't even 1/2 way through the book when he asked if there were more in the series. I ...more

Silly series starter where Blizz, the Yeti, gets invited to his family reunion. The reader learns a lot about where he lives and how Blizz and a large number of other “imaginary” creatures have all signed a pack to not be caught. No one must have proof of their existence.

Blizz is excited about his reunion but first must find his cousin who has run away since a photo of him has been leaked to the public. There are several other characters and we meet a lot of them including an arch nemesis. It’s

Have you have ever a read one of the yeti files books before well if you have not then you should read them all by Kevin Sherry. This is about a animal that lives in a cave who tries to find his lost family but meets some other pretty cool animals that are just like him. I like this book because it a lot of animals and action. In one part of the book they had to hide from a hunter who was trying to kill his kind. I would recommend this book a fiction and fairy tale reader.

I love Blizz the Yeti's family meeting place:
There are wheel slides, sliding zips, trambolines, barbecue place, volleyball courts, a perfectly working telescope and lots of things with full of fun. I was surprised when I saw the place in ruins. :( :( :(
But all the cryptids were continuing their jobs like nothing happened, although even the perfectly working telescope was turned into a rotten terrible, not working telescope.

This book was so fun to read with my son! The art is really good and we had fun finding all the little details. There are so many nonsensical kids books out there so I was happy to find the characters and story line all added up and progressed nicely. If I mention one complaint, it’s that some of the words are way too advanced for a young kids book. However, this just gives parents an excuse to read it to their kids I suppose. 🙂
