Format: Paperback
I admit, when we were first given this book by friends at a local library, I didn't get the point. The pictures appeared unattractive and when I read the book silently it was unappealing. I am very glad that it became one of the children's read-aloud choices right away. This book is wonderful. Yes, it is about fog, and could very adequately be used in a unit study about the weather. That, though, really isn't its appeal.
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.

Format: Paperback
I recently attended a Book Fair in Nevada where I had the opportunity to present my own TOONIES book to a new group of readers. When I left my table to browse through the bins of children's books, I came across this book.

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.

Recently I was asked to pick a favorite book from my childhood to give my niece and nephew for their baby (to build up his childhood library). This book was one of the first that came to mind. I lived the illustrations of the footy day and how it gets clearer and clearer. I guess it reminded me of visiting my aunt at the beach. I still have my original book(I'm 52 years old), but I was so pleased to see that it's still in print!

Format: Paperback
This isn't one of those books with a clear story and a plot and all that. Instead, it's one that just describes something - in this case, a three-day fog and the effect it has on everybody.

It's not a very exciting book, but it has its own quiet poetry to it, and the illustrations are to die for.
