“Another work to delight children and spark their imaginations. Wiesner’s detailed, exquisitely rendered paintings draw the reader into his story of a hurricane’s progress with all the sweep and immediacy of a film sequence. . . . This is an exuberant, absorbing slice of life.”
— Publishers Weekly
Take two boys, a ferocious storm, and a towering elm, and you've got prime material for imaginative play, David Wiesner style. Hurricane is the semi-autobiographical story of two brothers, David and George, who use a fallen tree as the jumping-off place for wonderful games of make-believe. This spectacular picture book takes readers on a limitless voyage of the imagination, which David and George share as only true friends — and brothers — can.
