Perfect beginner chapter book. With only 3 chapters kids will feel accomplished without feeling like they will never finish.
It really is the cutest book. I love the friendship between Yeti and Unicorn. Written to be funny and sweet with word bubbles think Elephant and Pig books the chapters flow easily and quickly. Kids will love the sweet conversations about sparkles, looking fancy and snowball fights. I love how Unicorn is so sweet to Yeti helping him/her accept herself and her surroundings. I read it out loud to my 14 year old while she worked on some art and she enjoyed it saying it was an adorable book and she would have loved to read it when she was younger.
The illustrations are so cute. I wish there was a cartoon based on these two characters.
