Yeti Left Home

Yeti Left Home is a cryptid adventure by Aaron Rosenberg where the Yeti features as a sympathetic and relatable everyman protagonist. Released 1st Feb 2023, it's 244 pages and is available in paperback and ebook formats. It's worth noting that the ebook format has a handy interactive table of contents as well as interactive links. I've really become enamored of ebooks with interactive formats.

This is a cute cryptid story featuring an adult yeti, Wylie, who has to leave his deepwoods mountain home and try to hide himself in the big city, Minneapolis. The story follows his efforts to blend in (most people he encounters see him as a big shaggy human), acquire food and shelter, and stay anonymous. Along the way, he encounters other supernatural beings, both benign and distinctly unfriendly, and develops and learns about himself and his place in the world. 

Three and a half stars. The writing is very simple and there's quite a lot of telling instead of showing. The author is adept at storytelling, and although the plot arc is simple and direct, it's entertaining and a worthwhile, quick read. 

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
