(From the publisher):
It started quietly, with a small flutter of leaves on the old oak tree. No one noticed at first: not the wren or crow, not the cow or pig, dog or cat, not the children playing in the shade. But when the first gust of windfull of that storm-fresh scentreaches them, the quiet comfort of a soft summer day is about to turn into a day of wind, darkness, and loud noises from the sky. Crack! Boom! Quick, hide! Beautifully written and illustrated with radiant paintings, this spare story captures the drama, fun, and thrill of a summer thunderstorm.
