Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-Mr. West Wind plagues Abigail Muchmore's land day and night. This patient and fiercely independent woman tolerates the havoc that the constant blowing creates on her farm until the impudent zephyr decides to play some tricks on her. First, her "fancy, new, store-bought bloomers" are sent sailing all the way to Sam Golightly's place, followed by the pears right off her trees. The final straw comes when her beloved Tornado Pup is propelled clear into the next county. Her good temper gone, Abigail lassoes her devilish foe and imprisons him in her storm cellar where she extracts promises from him to return her dog and to stop his constant barrage. Once liberated, he stays true to his word, and he and Abigail enjoy a peaceful coexistence. Somewhat pallid watercolors create a quieter mood than is warranted for this lively, humorous tall tale. Readers may also question Abigail's ability to lasso and capture a wind that is capable of uprooting trees and livestock, as she is depicted in the pictures as being slight and aged. Mr. West Wind himself is also problematic because rather than being represented as a strong force of nature, he is painted as a kind of bloated, overgrown cherub. Ultimately, this is a mismatch of text and artwork.-Rosalyn Pierini, San Luis Obispo City-County Library, CA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Sun-washed watercolors illuminate this literary tale of Abigail Muchmore and her troubles with Mr. West Wind. In spite of a longstanding friendship, one day Mr. West Wind blows Abigail's bloomers to Sam Golightly's farm, her pears onto the Pickerel place, and finally her dog clear into the next country. When she has had enough, Abigail Muchmore takes her lariat in hand and ropes in the mischievous West Wind testing her will against his. The first part of this new tall tale seems rather chaotic and difficult to follow, but the second half shines as Abigail stuffs the wind into her storm cellar and holds the door down, until the wind, who blows long and blows strong, finally declares Abigail Muchmore the winner. After extracting promises from Mr. West Wind to blow her dog back home and not to blow menacingly across her farm in the future, Abigail lets Mr. West Wind out. The wind keeps his promise and all is calm on Abigail's farm. While this offering from Grambling (The Witch Who Wanted to be a Princess, 2001, etc.) is superior to her earlier titles it will not be a first purchase, though storytellers may want to give it a second look.
