Essential, spooky-not-scary, wonderful, inspiring - Ungerer nails it 10 juin 2013
Par Tsar_Nicholas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This book is a marvel. I bought it at Changing Hands in Tempe week ago for my 3.5 year-old daughter, based mostly on a quick flip through the books to check out the illustrations. The pictures are atmospheric, moody, and remarkable, so I nabbed it.

It was a major hit. The story of the brother and sister from a self-sufficient family in a timeless "back of beyond" location on the Irish coast is clever, exciting, and spooky without being scary. My daughter absolutely adores it and has been constantly acting out key scenes from it. She loves the mysterious "Fog Man" and the strange animal companions he hangs out with.

The plot is essentially as follows ***SPOILER ALERT YO***:

- Brother and sister are presented by their dad with a boat he's made, and somberly instructed to stay close to the coast and, in any event, avoid Fog Island, which looms in the distance like a "jagged black tooth."

- Bro and sis are out on the boat and encounter heavy fog. The currents whisk them far away from shore.

- They land on a rocky island. It is spooky and they realize that it must be Fog Island.

- Scaling a set of treacherous steps to the castle at the top of the crag, they meet the Fog Man, who lives there alone with his many weird animal companions and regulates the supply of fog to the coast. He is surprisingly innocuous and welcoming, providing bro and sis generous hospitality.

- The kids wake up the next day amongst ruins, but still covered with the blanket that the Fog Man gave them, and with two hot bowls of the Fog Man's idiosyncratic stew beside them. The true nature of the Fog Man is left ambiguous.

- Bro and sis return homeward and are rescued from a storm by their dad and his fishing pals. The village celebrates, but none believe their story of the Fog Man, and none dare venture to the island to check for the evidence that bro and sis say remains there.

This book's also got some cool regional vocabulary words, such as "curragh" (the type of boat the siblings are in when they're pulled out to Fog Island on the tide).

This is probably the best book I've bought for the kid that isn't by either Dr Seuss or Richard Scarry. A must-have, and one that I expect will entertain and inspire kids in a very wide age range.

Parents note : Ungerer uses the word "hell" once to describe the appearance of a magma-filled well (by the flooding of which the Fog Man creates the fog of the coast), and I have been replacing that with an alternative word during readings so to avoid a theological discussion of eternal torment (in more ways than one) with a three-year-old, but apart from that and what the MPAA might call "mild peril," there's nothing worrisome or objectionable in the book. [though vegans may object to an image of the brother holding what appears to be a dead rabbit in one panel whose main focus is the shepherding activities of the siblings]

the bottom line : GET THIS BOOK

Filled with haunting and wondrous scenes that will spark the imagination 14 juin 2013
Par Z Hayes - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
"Fog Island" by renowned children's author and illustrator, Tomi Ungerer, is a beautifully-illustrated picture book with a captivating story that will appeal to readers young and old. Siblings Finn and Cara live a hardscrabble life on the Irish coast with their mother and father. Their father supplements the family's income from farming with fishing and is also a boat-builder. He builds a curragh (small boat) for the children but warns them never to stray too far off and to beware of Fog Island, a mysterious tooth-like island that is encased in fog and which is reputed to be a "doomed and evil place."

The story follows the children who through a misadventure, end up in the very place their father had warned them about. Their encounter with the mysterious Fog Man and their ensuing adventures make for an entertaining read and will certainly appeal to imaginative children yearning for excitement. My eight-year-old daughter could barely suppress her interest as she eagerly flipped through the pages to see what would happen to Finn and Cara. The element of darkness and mystery permeates the story and the muted illustrations lend this tale an air of suspense and high atmosphere that is sure to delight a wide audience. Strange and ethereal, "Fog Island" is one of those delightfully creepy tales that reaches out to those with adventurous souls. A recommended read.

My four year old grandson for whom I purchased the book was absolutely enthralled by it. He wanted to read it several times a day. The drawings were superb and so suited to the story line.

Could be a classic... love it! 23 janvier 2014

This illustrator's work has a unique and delightful character. We read The Beast of Monsieur Racine many times to our children. Our grandchildren are taken with this recently published boo, which captures a mystique and the special bond of experience between siblings. It also celebrates and educates young readers on a passing agrarian way of life. The story combines mystery and a hint of danger, with the values of love of family and of local mythology, even as it raises questions about the source of superstition and of conventional wisdom.
Wonderful book 1 février 2014
