This is a beautifully poetic picture book that has been translated from Latvian. A dog walks through his home town and sees that a thick fog has descended. It has changed how the townspeople feel and he wants to do something about it, so he does. The book inspires so much discussion about sadness, hope and having strong values. It also raised questions about ecology (We felt the sorrows may reflect the damage being done by pollution).
The illustrations are stunning and add to the poignancy of the story.
