We recently were sent ‘Hog in the Fog’ by the children’s publicist Faber and Faber. A beautiful story about Candy Stripe Lil and Harry the Hog who lived over the hill.
This story is perfect for any child big (ahem me) and small. I’m sure you’ll agree, the illustrations by Eunyoung Seo are adorable. They are the perfect partner for the story, which follows Lil and a few friends along the way, as she tries to find Harry the Hog, who has got lost in the fog.
Munch really enjoyed the pictures as well as the story, which is written in rhyming text (I can’t help singing it) and it has fast become a bedtime favourite. She discovers something new in the illustrations each time we read it. The crow is by far the best with his fantastic cap.
All in all, it’s a really heart warming tale, with great illustrations and a smile on every page.
If you’re not already convinced that this would make the perfect addition to your little ones collection, then why not take a peek at this recent book reading at the Faber and Faber offices by Russel Grant.
Disclaimer: We were sent a copy of Hog in the Fog to review. However all thoughts and smiles are 100% honest.
