Fog Island No one has ever returned from the mysterious Fog Island, but when Finn and Cara get castaway on its murky shores, they discover things are not quite as they expect... Will anyone ever believe them?
Winner of the 2013 New York Times Best Illustrated Children’s Books Awards, Fog Island is an imaginative tale of mystery and fear of the unknown by one of the world’s most acclaimed children’s books authors, Tomi Ungerer. Described by Tomi Ungerer as his personal ‘homage to Ireland’ (where the writer and illustrator now lives) Fog Island features 24 colour illustrations that capture the atmosphere of each scene of adventure. In the depiction of the skies, tradition is mixed with fantasy as the children travel between their hometown and Fog Island. It is a timeless story that reminds us of the traditional values of community life and a lifestyle lived close to nature. It recognises the courage in the siblings Finn and Cara and through this, teaches children to be brave in the face of the unknown in more ways than one.
