Hog in the Fog

Publisher: Faber & Faber

Review

Candy Stripe Lil is having a tea party. She's made lots of Harry the Hog's favourite treats, from chocolate-chip beetles and barnacle sludge to leeches on sticks and slug-flavoured chips. When there's no sign of Harry, Lil notices a thick fog outside, so she sets out to find him. She meets a helpful sheep, a friendly deer and a keen-eyed crow, who offer to help. They have all seen strange creatures in the fog but where is Harry?

A wonderful, comical rhyming story about friendship and collaboration, with lively alliterative text  and appealingly atmospheric illustrations, which make the words sing.
