Songs of the Fog Maiden by Tomie dePaola

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


With colorful illustrations and songs written by Tomie dePaola, the world of the Fog Maiden is filled with magic
As she drifts through her Day Garden, the Fog Maiden passes flowing crystal fountains, rows of dancing statues, and secret, shadowy places where she can stop and rest. In each place, she sings a special song. At twilight, her cat Token joins her. They take a Night Garden walk as Star-Flowers and Moon-Flowers tumble from the sky. Then it is time to leave for their enchanting night journey.
Token and the Fog Maiden first made their appearance in dePaola’s book When Everyone Was Fast Asleep. As in the previous book, the gifted author/artist has created beautiful, dreamlike landscapes in magnificent full-color paintings. The words and pictures capture the experience of childhood imaginations. 

This is a fixed-format ebook, which preserves the design and layout of the original print book.
