The Fog by Kyo Maclear (Book Review#80)

Warble is a bird that likes human watching. It sounds ironic as it’s normal for humans to go bird watching. Anyhow, this little bird loves what he does. He takes notes and enjoys observing the Island that he lives on.

This island is called Icyland, and it is very beautiful. One day a fog takes over the whole island making it very hard to see. Warble is no longer able to see any humans visit. This really upsets him. He starts asking other birds and animals, trying to find out why this has happened. No one cares.

One day he manages to barely see this little girl in the fog and begins to communicate with her trying to see if she too sees the fog. The little girl tells Warble that she sees the fog. So they decide together to send paper boat letters containing messages to anyone else out there. The message is to see if anyone else notices the fog. After sending many paper boats, others begin to respond back to them. As they receive more and more responses the fog is lifted.

As long as everyone gets involved in our environment and begins to care about the situations that harm earth then the “fog” of ignorance will be lifted.

This book is an excellent read in creating awareness towards our environmental issues.

  1. I like the idea of a human-watching bird. I wonder if we all get cool names, like the “double-chinned ninny” or the “big-nosed bellyacher.” Anyway, it’s a good idea to get kids thinking about caring for the environment from an early age.


    • Loving the names. Yes, I thought so too. It invites the notion of caring to a point in finding out why and by that intrigue others too.
