Old Devil Wind

Overview

In this cumulative tale that begins on “one dark and stormy night,” Ghost begins to wail. Then Candle flickers. Floor creaks. Owl hoots. And Wind begins to blow . . . and blow . . . and BLOW. . . . “The mounting cadence will be splendid aloud; kids will begin to chime in on the first reading. Root’s dark, swirling paintings of the thoroughly haunted house, lit with a ghostly glow, are right in the proper spirit.”—Kirkus Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
Young children like to join in the fun on Halloween, but they don't like to be scared. Martin's Old Devil Wind begins with a ghost who wails because it's a dark and stormy night. And then a stool thumps, a broom swishes, a candle flickers...on and on, until the wind blows everything away. Before the wind blows, there are lots of noises to make and things to act out. Young children will be so busy doing things, they'll eventually realize that a dark and stormy night is full of fun without getting scared.
