Yeti knows he's different from the other monsters; instead of destroying, Yeti likes to create, even if this means he's alone sometimes. Bold lines and dynamic illustrations bring Yeti and his fellow monsters to light in this heartwarming story about kindness and being yourself.

— Chelsea


New York Times bestselling author Kelly DiPucchio and celebrated illustrator Claire Keane have created an irresistible new monster!

Monsters are loud. And rude. They like to smash things and they always need to be right. But not Yeti. Yeti bakes banana bread and sings to whales and always has a nice word to say. But sometimes you find yourself alone when you're different. And Yeti doesn't know there's a special surprise in store for him.

New York Times bestselling author Kelly DiPucchio and celebrated illustrator Claire Keane have created a lovable new character who always chooses kindness, no matter what the other monsters say.

Praise For…

★ “A strong reinforcement for holding on to the value of kindness, even among monsters.” –Booklist (starred review)

“Whether viewers take away the notion that kindness is always worth it or that even when it feels like you’re alone, someone’s out there watching your back, this will lead them through the laughter to a final ‘awww.’” --BCCB Reviews
