Peek through each foggy vellum page to guess what lies beyond in an innovative novelty book that's a surefire page turner.
"What can this be in the foggy, foggy forest?" That's the question on every spread of this clever book, each depicting the black-and-white silhouette of a fairy-tale figure or scene. Readers may take a guess and turn the page to see if they’re right — the answering image appears in full color (often sporting a funny twist). A unicorn playing a horn? An ogre doing yoga? They're just two of the characters lurking in The Foggy, Foggy Forest, a clear winner for curious kids.

Below a silhouette imposed upon each plasticky and opaquely translucent page, this inventively designed picture book presents the question, What can this be in the foggy, foggy forest? Flipping the page reveals a color drawing on the other side of the darkened shapes: an elf sitting on a mushroom, a fairy queen jumping on a trampoline, Cinderella and Snow White romping about with water pistols. The neatest thing about the book is the cumulative effect of each almost-transparent page, through which you can see the vague outlines of the next several pages’ worth of silhouettes. The effect is a palpable sense of the fog lifting and moving gradually with each step into a fairy-tale forest. While there isn’t much of a story line to connect the pictures throughout, and the big fair that concludes seems like an odd curveball at the end, kids will enjoy the guesswork involved in turning each page, as well as the fanciful, humorous takes on the familiar figures they’ll find throughout.
