"A rural family and its neighbor face potential disaster as a tornado heads for their homes in this suspenseful though ultimately reassuring picture book," said PW. "The portraits of the children have an emotional pull, showing their move from playful to fearful to thankful as the ordeal begins and ends." Ages 4-8. (Mar.)
