PreS-Gr 2—This rhyming book is the first in a series of stories about Harry the Hog and his friend, Candy Stripe Lil, a shrew. Lil has invited Harry to tea at 3:00 p.m. one foggy March afternoon. She has spent hours preparing such delicacies as earwig fudge, chocolate-chip beetles, warm jellied maggots, and muck-shake. The appointed hour has arrived, but no Harry. Could he be lost in the fog? Lil grabs her cap and raincoat and sets out to look for him. A sheep, a deer, and a crow join the little shrew in her search. Now there are four traveling through the thick fog. Suddenly they must STOP because something, some "THING of some kind [is] half sunk in the bog" before them. Together they push, pull, and heave the THING out. Lo and behold, it's a very dirty, very hungry, and very stuck Harry, who is more than ready for his tea. Seo's illustrations are created with inks and mostly consist of earth tones such as browns and greens. The animals' faces are friendly and childlike, and the story's pattern is very similar to that of Joan L. Nodset's classic Who Took the Farmer's Hat? VERDICT Children will enjoy trying to unravel the "mystery" of what's hiding in the fog. The book is a suitable choice for larger libraries or as a supplemental purchase.—Roxanne Burg, Orange County Public Library, CA
