靠近點觀察世界——畢竟任何可愛的事物,在濃霧裡都可能像怪獸一般可怕!

驢子哈基姆(Hakim)織了一件毛衣,準備送給好朋友黛西(Daisy),而黛西住在遙遠的山頂,要想找到她,哈基姆必須長途跋涉。

這一天,山坡上遍佈著濃霧,哈基姆幾乎看不到前頭道路。忽然一位老山羊先生出現,警告他不准再往前行,「因為濃霧中有怪獸,太恐怖了!」。不聽此勸的哈基姆繼續走著,忽然間,他看見了一隻奇形怪狀、從未見過的生物,然而湊近一看,卻發現是隻頭上頂著磚塊、手上拿著木板的小狗。

一頭前往山坡的他們,接著又看見了一隻背上疑似長滿了角的謎樣生物,兩人不禁害怕心想,該不會山裡霧裡真的有怪獸吧?然而,那不過是一隻背上插滿了雨傘的小豬罷了。

就在眾人即將抵達山頂時,他們似乎望見了一隻巨無霸生物,但出乎意料的,這個生物不但不可怕,還十分的親人可愛。伴隨幽默逗趣的情節鋪陳,《霧中怪獸》(Monsters In the Fog)提醒孩子在觀察事物時看清楚全貌,不隨意盲從他人的意見,在眾多神祕的事物中看見他們可愛迷人之處。

 

● 作者簡介

"'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

"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
