It is the story of fog and the effect it has on the plans of some fishermen, some fathers, and some vacationing children. The pictures are wonderful! They easily convey the feeling of chilly, damp weather -- imposing a strange feeling of melancholy to the reader. But as the story evolves, the plot lightens with the fog, and the pictures eventually brighten to conclude a story about disappointment and interrupted plans.
It is a nice read-aloud and inspires questions and conversation throughout the reading. Our copy is now missing some pages. An order is in for a replacement. This book is a treasure and well worth uncovering.
Since I not only love to read and to write kids books, I also love the beach, so the cover of Hide and Seek Fog caught my eye right away. The kids in the fog made me think of when I lived in Capitola-by-the-Sea in Central California. Nostalgic feeling.
The effects of fog on our lives (especially the lives of people who live near water) are explained in wonderful words and illustrations. As the author goes along in the story, the illustrations lighten along with the fog ... sunshine prevails in the end ... which always makes kids feel good.
This is a great book to read aloud to your child. It may be an oldie, but it's a goodie, as a wise woman once said. I know your kids and/or grandkiddies will love it.
It's not a very exciting book, but it has its own quiet poetry to it, and the illustrations are to die for.
