Warble is a small yellow warbler who lives on the beautiful island of Icyland, where he pursues his hobby of human watching. But on a warm day, a deep fog rolls in and obscures his view. The rest of the birds don?t seem to notice the fog or the other changes Warble observes on the island. The more the fog is ignored, the more it spreads. When a Red-hooded Spectacled Female (Juvenile) appears, Warble discovers that he?s not the only one who notices the fog. Will they be able to find others who can see it too? And is the fog here to stay? Kyo Maclear?s witty story, brought to life with the delicate, misty artwork of Kenard Pak, is a poignant yet humorous reminder of the importance of environmental awareness.

This book took a wrong turn, unfortunately, in the story line. I think it could have emphasized more of what we all need to do to save the planet. It is like it fell off a cliff, the story line (that is) and couldn't be salvaged. The artwork is lovely.

The Fog by Kyo Maclear is gorgeous story with even more gorgeous artwork to accompany it. It's also a parable about working together as a community, small or large. I recommend you read it with your kids.

I like that the story is told from the bird's point of view. The illustrations are a great mix of beautiful backgrounds and funny characters.
