For more than a decade, our friends at GAMAGO have created some of the most delightful, inspired, and fresh characters around for t-shirts, toys, and other bric-à-brac. Along with everyone else who has known the wonder of the GAMAGO Yeti, I have wished for this mythical (?) beastie to come to life in narrative form. The wait is over! GAMAGO and Chronicle Books have just published "Yeti, Turn Out the Light!," a marvelous children's book that truly embodies the creativity and craft of GAMAGO proprietors Greg Long and Chris Edmundson.
As you'd expect, the full-color illustrations by Wednesday Kirwan are absolutely fantastic. The story is a delightful bedtime tale of shadows, monsters, and magic sure to please all children, and the adults that cuddle them.
The hardcover edition of "Yeti, Turn Out the Light!" is just $11 from Amazon. Below are two spreads from the book. Congratulations, Greg, Chris, and Wednesday!
