Review quote

-Wiesner captures perfectly the aura of a giant storm from a child's perspective. A family weathers a hurricane; the next day, in the post-hurricane yard, the two boys in the family play on a great fallen elm, imagining it to be a jungle, a pirate ship, and a space ship. A handsome book, affording opportunities for sharing fears and dreams of adventure.- -- Copyright (c) 1991 The Horn Book, Inc. All rights reserved.
