Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joella Peterson
Noah and his family need to prepare for the hurricane that is headed for their neighborhood. With wild lines and an explosion of color on every page, the illustrations relate the havoc associated with the topic, even though it is addressed in a picture book format. Even though the parents begin by calmly sitting and reading the newspaper and a book, they soon get working to prepare for the hurricane that hits their home the next day. In one day Noah and his parents board up the windows, secure items in the yard, shop for supplies, prepare containers of water, check all the batteries and the first-aid kit, and track the hurricane on the family computer. The book also explains what to expect once a hurricane hits and the various classifications of hurricanes. Although the story ends with only minor damage, the information provided will help young readers know what to expect when a hurricane comes their way. Lists of hurricane plans, hurricane kits, and what to do after the storm are included.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-Hurricane Anna is approaching, and Noah's family gets prepared. While Mom and Dad nail up the special shutters, Noah paints "Go Away Hurricane Wolf!" on his bedroom window shutter. The birdhouse and other outside items are carried inside, the tub is filled with water, and valuable papers are stored in plastic. The family makes a quick trip to the store for food and storm supplies, then settles in to track the hurricane on TV and computer. A category two storm arrives and passes by the second morning. Noah and his parents go outside to see the damage and begin to clean up. Paterson's watercolor world is bright and tropical. Without being too scary, she presents the facts and the how and why of preparedness. While the story is similar to Corinne Demas's Hurricane (Marshall Cavendish, 2000), libraries in hurricane-prone areas will want to own this title as well.-Angela J.

Kirkus Reviews
A hurricane is calling at the door. "Like the big, bad wolf," says Noah, the young narrator in Paterson's rousing and informative story of how to contend with heavy weather. Noah and his parents collect supplies-flashlights, food, water, first-aid kit-and batten the hatches as the storm gathers around them. Paterson's watercolors bevel the storm's scariness, but she uses the medium well, both as portent-scudding clouds, the wind getting serious, the harbingers of thunder and lightning-and in conveying the pure, unbridled energy of the hurricane: the roof rattling, the wind snarling, the lonesome boot cartwheeling past the storm-shutter's peephole. Lots of sound advice salts the story (and is summarized in fact sheets at the end of the book), which will make kids feel less helpless, if in no less awe, before the storm's brute force. (Picture book. 5-8)
