About the Author
"The cartoonish humor of the drawings provides a perfect counterpart to the calm, concise language of the tale's spare sentences, much as Hakim's steady resolve provides counterpoint to the jitters of his companions. With a subtle moral--everything is a monster in the fog--that is rendered playfully but is still thought-provoking."
"Plays on viewer expectations, but the real fun comes from the opportunity to guess what the fog illusions really are at storytime." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"The watercolor illustrations are dramatically composed, full of humor, and punctuated with mysterious glowing fog. A book that is perfect for storytime and, with its clean design and accessible text, also for new readers." --The Horn Book Magazine
"'It's hard to knit a sweater with your hooves, ' writes Bahrampour (A Pig in the Palace) in the irresistible opening to this parable about curiosity versus fear, 'but Hakim somehow did it, '. . .he book's meaning is unmistakable, and even urgent: snap judgments and trepidation are no way to move forward in the world." --Publishers Weekly
