Gr 3–5—Yam is a spirited cherub of a boy dressed in a charming head-to-toe jumpsuit. He and his quirky friends cavort around the tropical island of Leche de la Luna, having surreal adventures involving friendly cupcakes, tambourine-shaking flowers, and magic potions. The wordless panels are quite effective with the tenderly drawn art powerfully conveying nuanced moments. A solid addition to any graphic novel collection.—Lauren Anduri, Brooklyn Public Library, NY
