    One thought on “The Foggy, Foggy Forest

    1. The featured, the depicted illustrations of Nick Sharratt s The Foggy, Foggy Forest, consisting of a black and white silhouette of a fairy tale scene which is then revealed in full colour on the next page are indeed clever and often very much visual fun And I have especially enjoyed the images of the ogre doing yoga, and Cinderella and Snow White engaged in a bit of a brouhaha, joyfully and with gay abandon spraying each other with water pistols However, I do tend to find the constant What can t [...]


    2. There isn t much to this book but it is cute, and for kids it might be fun to guess know what s on the next page For each double page there is a silhouette of something in the foggy foggy forest with the a tad annoying for this adult repeating questioning of what it could be and then the next pages show, via rhyme and full color picture what it is There are some fairy tale characters and they re in amusing positions such as Cinderella and Snow White in a water pistol fight There are only about t [...]




    3. This book enchanted me I loved the vellum pages that showed the shadow on the right hand side and then the color side when you turned the page on the left hand side Good guessing game book.



    4. Lately, I ve been loving books that encourage the children to interact with it, rather than just a passive story Of course, you can make any storytime experience interactive, asking questions like What do you guys think is going to happen next but books that actually ask the questions are surefire wins example Look Look Look , Spot the Plot A Riddle Book of Book Riddles, etc I did a fairy tale themed storytime, and The Foggy, Foggy Forest was a great opener I started out by talking about fairy t [...]


    5. Cute, clever idea with translucent pages hinting at upcoming details hidden by the fog Little kids will probably get a kick out of the jokey scenes I liked the sparser images of black tree silhouettes best.


    6. A very cool concept of the see through pages and our favorite fairy tale characters hanging out in the foggy forest.



    7. This is a good and fun predictive book with the phrase What can this be in the foggy, foggy forest repeated on every double page This allows readers to familiarise themselves with the text and also know what is coming The whole book uses translucent pages depicting a fairy tale or scene with black and white silhouettes allowing readers to guess what they are and turn the page for a full colour image allowing the reader to see if they were correct with their prediction.


    8. A fun book which encourages children to guess who is hiding in the foggy vellum pages Each double page features in turn foggy figures followed by full colour characters having fun in the foggy forest Great for playing guessing games with children


    9. December 2017 I love the concept of the foggy translucent pages and guessing what s behind each one, but it doesn t really come together into a story Ben loved guessing and turning the pages.



    10. The book is an interactive and questioning book Not necessarily following a story line with a beginning, middle and end but with a question, a gap for the child to respond what they think the black silhouette may be, and then turning the page to give you the answer The story contains a repeating refrain of what can be in the foggy foggy forest The response it always a character with a rhyming activity e.g a little elf all by himself The children bring their knowledge of traditional tales and fai [...]


    11. Am looking forward to using this one in a storytime having kids guess what the shapes are Waxy pages allow shadows to appear through a really neat effect Most are fairy tale type creatures elf, witch, ogre, Snow White so could use with fairy tales in storytime Another possibility would be to use with It Looked like Spilt Milk.Originally published in England.Candlewick, 2008From EnglandUnusual vellum pages allow children to see shadows in the forest and guess what they ll find on the next page Us [...]

    13. I love reading this book with my 4 and 6 year olds As a parent, this book is great for boosting imagination It starts each page with What can this be in the foggy, foggy forrest and the reader sees a shadow, and upon turning the page you see what the real image is But they are not what you think The silly spins on fairytale characters leave my kids cracking up every time even though we have read this book a lot and they know what is coming The repetitive phrase definitely helps new readers with [...]


    14. We checked this book out from the library one week ago, and have probably read it at least fifteen times with our youngest two The pictures are made of vellum paper and are semi transparent, so it makes for magical guessing as to what s waiting through the fog on the other side of the page It s also one of those books that an adult won t hide under the bed or in the closet after the third request to read it in a single day It s clever and delightful enough to sit through for a second or third re [...]


    15. This was the perfect book to use to introduce this week s story time theme Fairy Tales It would also work well with a Shadows theme or a Fair theme On each page you see a shadow outline on vellum accompanied by the phrase What can this be in the foggy, foggy forest Turn the page and see the subject in color and described in rhyme.a little elf all by himselfa unicorn playing a hornGoldilocks with a candy boxc.It ends with them all finding a traveling fair.


    16. This book was unique because the pages were transparent, but not clear, so you could see outlines without knowing exactly what was on the next page That would be fun for kids because they would be able to guess what is coming up next I also liked that the book seamed creepy, like it would be good for around Halloween but nothing scary at all happens in the book That would be awesome to read as a class because it would get the kids excited about the season, but it would not scare them at all.


    17. There are shadowy shapes in the foggy, foggy forest As the reader turns each translucent page, the shadows turn out to be brightly colored forest animals and storybook creatures This clever concept is coupled with silly rhymes such as an ogre doing yoga and a fairy queen on a trampoline Younger kids will enjoy the rhymes and older kids will like guessing what the shapes will be once the page is turned Gr PreK 1.


    18. Fairy tale characters and fantastical creatures are hiding behind vellum pages in this unique novelty book For those who like I Spy games, they will love this new take on the hide and seek format Creatures such as a unicorn are hidden in silhouette on the right side, but when you turn the page, the creature that was hiding is show in full color I am interested to see if Nick Sharratt finds another creative use for this technique.


    19. This is a book I have read before but I liked it so much I thought we could revisit it So we did The shadowy, black and white illustrations juxtaposed with the colorful characters and pictures make this book stand out as does the clever use of vellum for the pages It isn t a complex story but it is so fun and different that I gave it a five star rating.


    20. Vellum pages let shadows show through, and pages can be turned to reveal what is casting the shadow fairy tale characters Great book for imagination and guessing pair with It Looked Like Spilt Milk or Guess Again.


    21. Nick Sharratt s books always go down a treat with our students lively, colourful illustrations and infectious rhymes The Foggy, Foggy Forest is great for stimulating discussion what could the silhouettes in the forest be A favourite here at Tsing Yi.


    22. This is a very cleverly designed book made from clear vellum On each page, you can see the shadow or outline of the upcoming person and can guess at what it might be Then you turn the page to get the full colored picture Clever and nice use of fairytale characters that most children will recognize.


    23. I really enjoyed this The illustrations are really cleverly done because all the silhouettes in the story appear on each page in different shades of grey The are gradually revealed as the book progresses When the silhouettes are revealed, the contrast between the greys and blacks of the remaining silhouettes and the colourful reveal is really striking.


    24. Recommended to me by another Children s Librarian I bought it from , though, because not in any of my local area libraries I loved the artistic, shadowy, construction, but not the flimsyness of the pages, several of which were ripped in my used copies Liked the black white and use of color contrast I liked the originality of the verse and the inclusion of fairy tale characters.
