When a storm is raging, David and George are glad to be inside the house, snug and safe. In this spectacular picture book by Caldecott Honor recipient David Wisener, a fallen tree becomes the threshold to the limitless voyage of the imagination, which David and George share as only true friends--and brothers--can.
"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 © 1991 The Horn Book, Inc. All rights reserved.
"We wouldn't wish a real hurricane on children, but this book will give them a taste of the magic of the moment when the lights go out." School Library Journal, Starred
