Meg and Mog set out to climb the highest mountain in the world in this eleventh picture-book devoted to their adventures, enlisting the help of a sherpa named Tsing to get to the top. When a thick fog descends during their ascent, Meg's spell to clear the mist - "Iceaxe, compass / Goggles and log / Help me, show me / Lead me to Mog" - reveals that the trio have inadvertently joined company with a yeti, much to their mutual dismay...

Like its predecessors, Mog In the Fog features a simple text, split between straightforward narrative and various exclamations in speech bubbles, and vividly colorful illustrations. As always, the textual and visual elements work together to create an engaging story experience. The scene in which everyone is lost in the fog - the two-page spread is entirely grey, with various speech bubbles appearing - is a perfect case in point, as is that in which the startled yeti is revealed in all his pink and red glory. I could have happily lived without the sherpa's somewhat broken English - "O.K. I lead caravan" / "Very old bridge" - but leaving that aside, this was an engaging addition to the Meg and Mog series.
