    DescriptionGrades 1-3 Even the normally low-key, matter-of-fact Gibbons cant resist getting wound up by her spectacularly violent topic. Pairing clearly presented basic facts and terms with spattered watercolor scenes of widespread destruction, she explains the weather conditions that engender tornadoes, squires readers through each of the five increasingly powerful stages of the recently developed Enhanced Fujita Tornado Scale, highlights two of the most devastating tornadoes recorded in this country, and closes with tips on staying safe when a twister threatens. Younger readers and listeners alike will be riveted by this melodramatic but, as ever, informative introduction to the weather phenomenon.
