What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

A storm and its sunny aftermath come to life through gorgeous art and lyrical text.

What do you do when the clouds roll in, When the wind chimes clang and the weather vanes spin?

When stormy skies threaten, people stock up on supplies, bring in their outside toys, and check the news for updates. And during the storm, if the power goes out, they can play games and tell stories by candlelight. But what do animals do? They watch and listen, look for a cozy den or some other sheltered spot, and hunker down to wait. After the storm, while the people are cleaning up their yards, making repairs, and checking on the neighbors, the animals emerge from their hiding places and shake off the rain. And everyone is happy to be out in the sunshine again, grateful for better weather and the company of friends.

4.75 / 7.0

A story that celebrates that cozy feeling of sheltering while a storm rages. Most of it is delightful but the ending is a bit flat.
