The Fog by Kyo Maclear

it's totally about global warning and it's awesome.

The Fog
This poignant and timely work shows the importance of championing a cause and fighting until it is solved, even if you aren't necessarily equipped to solve it.

Warble the bird may not be an expert on the weather, but he can tell that something is wrong with the fog. While at first no one listens to him, he finally finds an ally in a little girl who also notices something is amiss. When they launch a global awareness campaign (in the form of origami letters into the ocean), more allies from around the world take notice, and the fog eventually lifts.

Even beyond the positive message, the work is beautifully illustrated, with spare text that doesn't overwhelm the page. It would work especially well as a group readaloud.

I received this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
