Kirkus Reviews
Whirls of wind, belts of clouds, torrents of rain, surges of sea, funnels of air-all are packed into an eye-catching addition to the Closer Look At series. Green gives children the inside scoop on hurricanes, cyclones, tornadoes, typhoons, twisters, and tropical storms. Weather watchers will learn the science behind wind power and speed, the formation of storm clouds and fronts, wind cells, and waterspouts, as well as the role climate and low pressure play in the formation of hurricanes. Full-color photographs of storm destruction are presented in a vivid arrangement of text and visuals, along with illustrated color charts, graphs, maps, and cross-sections that demonstrate wind, earth, and air principles for report-writers. "On Closer Inspection" sections feature tidbits of peripherally related information. Compact, concise, and clearly presented. (diagrams, glossary, index) (Nonfiction. 9-12) .
