Harper’s watercolor-and-ink illustrations marvelously convey emotion as well as personality… The appealing story and wide array of weather facts make this a breath of fresh air to round out and add interest to weather units that are heavy in nonfiction titles.
The watercolor and ink illustrations add a splash of color and humor to the story. The individual personalities and feelings of the characters are evident by their expressive faces. The story is supplemented by brief facts about animals and the weather.
