i’ll admit, sometimes i buy the book because of the art, it’s the designer in me. this book is so colorful, and the art is a YES. the deer, the bunnies, the YETI. i think the first page i ever saw was the bunny page- with their sweet, big eyes, and there was no way i was putting it back.
the story is about letting your imagination run away, and being afraid of what could be in the dark. but then turning on the light, and realizing it’s nothing but something familiar. yeti clears the distractions (all his friends trying to get some shut eye, with him, in his bed) and finally gets the ZZZZzzzzz’s he needs. i love it. and with all the distractions, and times my kids are up, and up, and up and asking for one. more. thing… it’s on point. i’ve even found myself saying- yeti needs to turn out the light now and get some sleep!
the chronicle books page for yeti, turn out the light! hope you, and your wee humans like it too.
