Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Donna Brumby
The exciting, interesting work of professional storm-chaser and photographer Warren Faidley is conveyed well by the vivid photographs and lively commentary of this heavily illustrated book. Lightning, tornadoes and hurricanes are simultaneously frightening and fascinating, and Eye of the Storm, combining elements of biography, science and career exploration, will probably be well received by young readers of various interests and educational levels. The book offers nice layout and organization and a competent glossary, but suffers from the absence of direct photograph identification or an index. Essential safety measures are also discussed.
School Library Journal
Gr 4-7Dramatic full-color photos of lightning, tornadoes, and hurricanes are a vivid testimony to the dedicated efforts of Warren Faidley, storm chaser and photographer. Kramer's readable, exciting text allows readers to ride with Faidley in his specially equipped vehicle, Shadow Chaser, as he races to intercept likely tornado or lightning producers and to join him in the chaotic maelstrom of Hurricane Andrew. Interspersed with Faidley's adventures is a concrete body of information on lightning, storm development, tornado behavior, and the art of photographing fleeting phenomena. There is no index, but the organization of the material and a clear table of contents make specific information readily available. This eye-catching book will undoubtedly be utilized by nonfiction lovers hungry for a good read.Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY
Kirkus Reviews
Faidley is a storm chaser and photographer who has made a career of capturing on film images of tornadoes, lightning storms, and hurricanes. These dramatic full-color pictures, many of which illustrate the book, have brought him awards and acclaim. Kramer describes Faidley's exciting and dangerous life: the special equipment he has designed; his preparation for shoots; the process of locating storms; the "chase" that he hopes will result in a photographic record for others to use and enjoy. An excerpt from Faidley's diary limns a particularly frightening day when he and a partner found themselves in the midst of seven tornadoes. The photographs in the book are magnificent in their depiction of nature on the rampage, and in conveying the awesome power of the storms Faidley pursues.

    Stunning!

    Faidley has done it again, but this time just for kids. Faidley, as a professional storm chaser and photographer, has earned my respect. In his books, the sprit of chasing and storm photography-- not knowing what each day will bring, the dangers and magical moments of storms-- shines through. Vivid description, breath-taking images. This one deserves (what Howie Bluestein might say) 'two convective towers up'!
