The curlicue forest is wrecked. Can the tumblers who live there survive? Will their cubby protect them? Will Jot and Yittle ever skimper and rimble again? The Slithering Mist is a make-believe tale of disaster and recovery. In real life, children hear about fires, tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, floods. Some kids even experience them. Children ages 4 to 8 who are caught by calamities, or afraid of the possibility, will find this story and its fanciful illustrations comforting. The Slithering Mist reassures kids that such disasters do not last forever.
