Product Details

Praise

The power and beauty of wind take center stage in this gorgeously illustrated picture book about its journey across the world. . . . Accompanying the rich prose are the spectacular illustrations, which manage to convey the awe-inspiring strength of the wind as it whips through the world, creating waves and tornadoes, but also carrying seeds, petals, and birds safely on their journeys. A splendid coupling of science and art in one beautiful, ­accessible volume, certain to spark the interest of many young readers.–
—School Library Journal (starred review)

Starting in southern Africa, where a girl named Cassi releases a healed swift into its flock, this picture book tells parallel tales of Beijing swifts’ migratory habits and the ongoing, ancient powers of the wind. The spectacular artwork alone will draw in children too young to read the sparse, lyrical, yet informative text. Vibrant colors highlight dramatic, sometimes surreal, landscapes, seascapes, and skyscapes. . . . Full-circle ecstasy.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
