    That's not fog That's pollution bruhAlso those kids seemed a bit too young to be wandering home in such thick fogAlso those kids seemed a bit too old to be sleeping in baby carriages

  3. Nancy Kotkin Nancy Kotkin says:

    I found this picture book in the moving section of my library but it's not really about moving It has an environmental message; specifically the people and even the houses are desperate to escape all the fog which seems to be a euphemism for air pollution As an answer the houses all come to life growing arms and legs and move onto hills above the fogDespite the didactic nature of this book's message it works even less as a moving book Children who are upset and sad about moving with their family may wish their house to grow limbs and come with them to the new location based on reading this book

    Rabbit and I tore into this delightful book as soon as it crossed our threshold and we loved it The story of a family that is moving house and the children and the house that conspire to stay together is a fun read and a deceptively simple story There is a lot happening beneath the words and around the corners of the images; as author Mark Siegel explains in this snippet interview moving house has a lot of meaning to young children and home means then just a place you live is wonderful book that reminds us to be at home with ourselves and our families and that a true home travels with us

    This story was a bit lost on me I did not get it Was it about the kids moving and loving their house? Was it to make a point about the environment and having clean air? I don't think kids will get the house just picking up and walking around to end up at a different point on the globe Okay

    The art was nice enough Siegel's last big project was the Siebert honor book To Dance but the story was a little bit lost on me The city is oppressing the affluent white family with its dirtiness so their house picks up and moves them to the peaceful countryside? Did I get that right?

  7. GraceAnne GraceAnne says:

    imaginative and deliciously drawn

  8. Edward Sullivan Edward Sullivan says:

    A delightful fantasy and a clever twist on stories about moving anxieties

  9. Rachel Rachel says:

    Interesting imaginative elements but it feels a little didactic and does not make sense overall

    Foggytown had such thick fog that people couldn’t even see where they were walking Chloe and Joey wished that they could see the stars from their house but it was far too foggy for that One foggy day when they returned home their parents announced that they were moving As they went to bed the two children thought about everything they would miss about this house the warm spot on the kitchen floor the long hallway to run down and their secret spot upstairs Then suddenly their room moved and they were wiggled around Their house had sprouted arms and legs and was walking down the road It took them to a hill above the fog where they could see the stars and look over the world for miles After visiting with other buildings the children got tired and headed back to bed What will they see when they wake up in the morning?Read the rest of my review on my blog Waking Brain Cells
