A clever and warm-hearted trip into the mountain fog humorously reminds youngsters that not all unknown or unfamiliar creatures (or people) are monsters to be feared. Hakim the donkey learns repeatedly that appearances can be deceiving- the scary monsters hidden in the mountain mist are just friendly animals whose appearance is, at first, distorted by fog! And then, in a fitting, final twist, the one creature we encounter who really is a monster is Hakim's friend. Loving everyone for who they are despite appearance is the message of kindness that kids will enjoy as they read and re-read this one, again and again. ~ Reviewed by Jon Fine
